The inauguration of St Charles Lwanga Catholic parish, Bujuuko in Mpigi brings to 66 the number of ecclesiastical parishes in the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Kampala.
Delivering his homily during the thanksgiving mass, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Kampala, Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, who presided over the inauguration, congratulated the parishioners of Bujuuko for their zeal and efforts towards achieving a fully-fledged parish.
"History tells us that you first requested to have this parish in 1946, during the time of Archbishop Cabana. You have thus waited for 70 years. This proves your love and devotion to the faith. Now that God has granted you the gift of the parish you have always desired, endeavor to be committed Christians, who are also loyal to the established leadership of the Roman Catholic Church," Lwanga said.
During the function, Lwanga installed Fr Anthony Bbaale as the pioneer parish-priest of Bujuuko. He also blessed he grotto of Mary and, wedded two bcouples.
