UJCC has issued routes and starting points for Friday's Way of the Cross.
KAMPALA - According to the executive secretary of the Uganda Joint Christian Council (UJCC) Fr Dr Silvester Arinaitwe Rwomukubwe says the theme of this year's Way of the Cross is ‘Continuity through succession and obedience'.
It is derived from the books of Numbers 27:18-19 and Joshua 1:7-8.
For Friday's Way of the Cross, at every starting point where pilgrims gather, coordinators will have to liaise with the traffic police for the routes.
UJCC has issued routes and starting points from where the different congregations would follow as they participate in the way of the cross leading to Old-Kampala Secondary School field where they are scheduled to finally converge for a common service.
