RELIGION
 
Former seminarians and religious novices have been asked to stop crying over the disappointment of their termination from the seminaries and houses of religious formation and instead take up the challenges of life with faith, hope and determination.
 
The call was made by Joachim Masagazi, a founding member of SEDA (Social and Economic Development Association), during the association’s annual general meeting and 12th anniversary celebrations at Saint Edward High School, Lubaga.
 
Seda is a holistic empowerment association that brings together former seminarians, former religious novices and their spouses.

The Chairman of the association, Peter Anthony Kiberu congratulated members of the association on clocking 12 years. 
 
He said the association was still committed to its vision of being a leading association in harnessing self-actualization of its members through improved social network, financial and spiritual resilience.
 
He said that the association had resolved to start investing in real estate and securities with the Central Bank, further to disbursing loans to its members.
 
Ambrose Kibuuka Mukiibi, a celebrated Catholic motivational speaker, encouraged the ex-seminarians, ex-religious novices and their spouses to make efforts to discover their strong and weak points, subsequent to which they can discard their detrimental behaviors and attitudes and then move forward.
 
The function ended on a sweet note when some members of the association came out courageously and promised to take their spouses to church for official Christian wedding before the close of this year.  Members of the association generally resolved to be more committed to the Church and the association.
 
The celebration ran under the theme: Facing the future together with Seda as the umbrella.
