Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga of Kampala Archdiocese has urged Christians to cherish unity and also promote peace right from their homes to the diocesan level as well as the truth.
“You find lies everywhere even at home. A husband tells the wife lies and vice-versa even children telling lies. Tell the truth and the truth will set you free,” he counselled.
He made the remarks Sunday afternoon during the Golden Jubilee celebrations as Jinja Catholic diocese where President Museveni was the guest of honour.
While welcoming the President and the congregation to the ceremony, the host Bishop, Rt. Rev. Charles Martin Wamika of Jinja Catholic diocese disclosed that plans are underway to establish a radio station that would mobilize not only the faithful but all Ugandans in the diocese on how to eradicate poverty, promote health and other pertinent issues affecting society.
To this effect, a fundraising drive was conducted towards the construction of the radio station.
Earlier, the main celebrant of the Mass, Apostolic Nuncio to Uganda Archbishop Michael August Blume, strongly urged Christians of Jinja diocese, to cooperate in the mission entrusted to the clergy of witnessing to the Gospel in search for the lost sheep.
“Be missionary disciples who have the duty to renew the church in the next 50 years as Pope Francis says- ‘to go out of the comfort zones to bring back the lost sheep,” he told the congregation.
The Apostolic Pronuncio also counselled Christians in Jinja Diocese to value Christian marriage to ensure that their families become truly domestic churches.
