NABBINGO - The head of the laity of Our Lady of Visitation Catholic Parish, Nabbingo, Grace Lwanga, has announced plans to start up income-generating projects.
According to Lwanga, the new idea would enable the parish to fund its projects without necessarily relying on the money that is collected from the local Christians during mass.
He argued that even though the parish was implementing massive projects such as the construction of the parish’s sh1.5bn presbytery without any foreign assistance, running the Church’s activities using money generated from appeals to the local Christians, it was nolonger a viable strategy.

Lwanga was presenting the report of the executive council of the parish, during the celebrations for the parish’s 76 anniversary, which took place at the Church in Wakiso district last Sunday.
The celebrations were presided over by the Metropolitan Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga who, during his homily, asked the Christians of Nabbingo to live on the Catholic values, to love and defend their faith.
During the function, Lwanga also confirmed 540 children, whom he asked to put to use the gifts of the Holy Spirit that they had received.
The parish-priest, Fr. Charles Kiggundu pledged to be even more committed to serving the Christians by visiting them in their homes, as well as being available for the Christians at the parish.
