MASAKA - Plans are in high gear by the Catholic Diocese of Masaka to start a radio station under the name Centenary Radio FM.

This was revealed by the Catholic Church's national pastoral co-ordinator, the Rev Fr Dr John Baptist Kaganda, during his homily in a holy mass he celebrated on the Divine Mercy Sunday at Nsambya Bishop Ddungu Memorial ground.

He reminded the Christians of the co-operative movement that helped improve the living conditions of the people of Masaka, irrespective of their religion, creed or political inclination.

Conveying Kaggwa's message, Kaganda also asked the faithful to pray for Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II so that he lives long in remain in good health to lead the people of Buganda. He also called on them to turn up in large numbers when the Kabaka visits Masaka.

Kaganda, who is also the chaplain of the Masaka Catholics living in Kampala, encouraged Christians to pray for forgiveness of the Divine Mercy when they despair.

After the holy mass, the Christians also formed a social club, the Masaka-Kampala Catholic Club that would cater for their needs in times of difficulties.
