HOLY MATRIMONY

KAMPALA- The Assistant Bishop of Kampala Diocese, the Rt Rev Dr Hannington Mutebi, has asked Christian married couples to make God the supreme guide of their matrimonial life. 

“It is only God who can help us to remain in perfect love. It is for that matter that married couples must give God the counsellor and protector of their marriage. Without God, we cannot fulfill the marital vows of mutual love, mutual help and mutual companionship,” Mutebi said.

He was presiding over the first ever corporate wedding at St Francis Chapel, Makerere University, on Saturday. 

Mutebi further asked the couples he wedded not to take marriage as an entertainment, but to celebrate it as a special ministry that was sanctified by God.

“God wanted us to take up this ministry and serve him in this capacity. We must, therefore, have the determination to exercise our due responsibilities in marriage.” 

During the function, Mutebi wedded 17 couples. Among those who said ‘I do’ were Col Fred Mureeba and his wife Justine Naikoba.

The Chaplain, Rev Onesmus Asimwe said the Chapel Council had endorsed the idea of the corporate wedding in order to enable couples attain righteousness in their marital life.

The function, which climaxed with a luncheon at St Francis Students Centre, Makerere University, was also graced by the Diocesan Secretary, Rev Canon Fred Komunda.

Clerics such as Canon Diana Nkesiga also graced the function.
