FAITH | ACHBISHOP LWANGA
The Archbishop of Kampala Dr Cyprian Kizito, has expressed concern over increased cases of domestic violence in the country. He said the violence is fueled by lack of faithfulness and lies in relationships.
Lwanga warned that dishonesty and violence is affecting the future of the young generation, who are most likely to adopt the same vices.
He was speaking during the thanksgiving Mass to mark the 75th anniversary of Our Lady of Help Catholic Parish Kkonge, in Mpigi district, on Saturday. Archbishop Lwanga led the Mass.
Lwanga said unity, peace, mutual understanding and tolerance are the key elements to ensure a wholesome life.
“I only wish that you remain true to who you are; that you will go forward, taking the same path traced for you by the honest big personalities (sic) in the past. May you continue in a worthy way what they started – peace building, justice, mutual understanding and tolerance,” he said.
Lwanga urged Catholics in Kkonge to remain faithful and continue what the church fathers started 75 years ago, when the church was built in the region to serve the community.
At the same function, he reminded the congregants to prepare to mark 50 years of Kampala Archdiocese on October 29. The theme of the celebration will be "Remember, Rejoice and Renew", picked from Pope Francis's words he told religious the day he meant them at Lubaga Cathedral.
The function was graced by Vice-President Edward Ssekandi, who launched St. Luke Health Centre II, which is still under construction. The health centre is being built by well-wishers.
