Hundreds of Catholics from all the 67 parishes making up Kampala Archdiocese have converged at Lubaga Cathedral to celebrate the Archdiocesan day.
This is the 52nd anniversary since the archdiocese was formed after joining Nsambya that was under the mill hill missionaries and Lubaga dioceses under the white fathers from France to form Kampala Archdiocese with the first archbishop the late Cardinal Emmanuel Nsubuga.
The Archbishop Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga the main celebrant has hailed the congregation for preparations, services and achievements in the year ending October under the theme; Remember, Rejoice and Renew, that has been reflected on for the last three years.
The theme was drawn from the message of his holiness Pope Francis when he visited Uganda in November 2015.
Dr. Lwanga reminded the congregation of virtue of truthfulness in life and respect to God, that society is lacking that is why; corruption, theft, human sacrifice, torture and murders ere eminent in the country.
He said there is need for total renewal of each individual and for those with special calling like the married, the priests and the religious should be the light of the Catholic Church.
The Christians came from 67 parishes of Kampala Archdiocese who later matched before the Archbishop in the spirit of solidarity and obedience. Wakiso Vicariate that comprises of Gayaza Deanery, Naddangira Deanery and Mattuga Deanery animated the mass.
He later announced a new theme Remember, Rejoice and Renew as we reflect on our Christianity which is in relation to the 50th anniversary of The Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar SECAM that was innogualated in Uganda at Lubaga in 1969 by now St. Pope John VI.
