THE Bishop of Lugazi diocese, Matthias Ssekamanya, has decried the low church collections on Sundays, saying most people offer sh100 and sh200 coins.
Ssekamanya was speaking to hundreds of Christians who turned up at St. Kizito Catholic Church, Lugazi on Christmas day.
He urged Christians to contribute generously to the strong foundation of the church.
â€œI am totally dismayed by our Christians who put sh100 and sh200 coins in the basket on Sundays. When shall we build our church when the dayâ€™s collection is low like that?â€ he said.
Ssekamanya also decried the rampant cases of defilement, rape and ritual murder, saying they are caused by lack of good morals in families.
He advised men against battering their wives on Christmas Day.
Sekamanya advised parents to instill good morals in the children so that they become responsible citizens in future.
The congregation also bid farewell to the vicar general of the diocese, Ignatius Kayita.
Kayita will leave next month for further studies in the USA. Ends
