Good Samaritan Sisters of Nalukolongo and friends of the late Cardinal Nsubuga gathered at Nalukolongo to commemorate the 26th anniversary since the death of Cardinal Emanuel Kiwanuka Nsubuga a man described as a practical Good Samaritan in his life time.
In a mass led by the Chancellor Fr. Joseph Mary Ssebunya on Thursday April 20th the exact date when Cardinal Nsubuga died in 1991 it was observed that the deceased was a man of prayer, developmental and cared for the most vulnerable that is why he started a number of projects notably the Bakateyamba home at Nalukongo that currently caters for over 120 elderly who have no caretakers.
He founded the institute of the Good Samaritan Religious Sisters of Nalukonongo, Mapeera Religious Brothers, St. Mbagga Major Seminary Ggaba, Pope Paul Memorial Hotel and Kyankwanzi daily firm among other projects.
Fr. Ssebunya said although many grieved that date when Cardinal Nsubuga died 26 years ago, many Ugandans and the entire Kampala Archdiocese which is marking 50 years currently pride in his contribution that touched the spiritual, economic and social life of humanity.
He reminded Ugandans of those in need because the world is derailed with capitalism where each person caters for himself and yet the elderly, children with special needs and the most vulnerable are increasing calling for generosity to such groups and people.
The Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga together with Good Samaritan Sisters have erected an art piece of the late Cardinal Nsubuga at bakateyamba to help others visualize him
