The Congregation of Mary Reparatrix Sisters of Bugonga in Entebbe has celebrated its centenary anniversary under the theme; A century of love and service.

The Sisters of Mary Reparatrix are a religious institute of nuns in the Catholic Church which was founded in France in 1857.

Their way of life has been to combine adoration of God with the evangelization of society, especially for women.

The Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga who was the main celebrant, appealed to Sisters to committee their lives to mother Mary in order to manage their challenges.

He further says that many tend to lose trust in Mother Mary especially during the time of challenges and yet other Catholics forget to use the Church’s guidelines to connect to God.

However, Dr. Lwanga hailed the contribution of prayer through reparation with mother Mary the charisma of the Sisters of Mary Reparatrix in Uganda which has also made their existence strong.

The celebrations were also graced by Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa of Maska Diocese, Bp. Charles Wamika (Jinja Diocese). Three Sisters celebrated 50 years in the congregation and two other commemorated their silver jubilee.
