The Archdiocese of Kampala has a vision

What’s Happening Now The Most Rev. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, of the Archdiocese of Kampala has a vision. On a recent visit to the Mission Office here in Boston, he shared his dream of a different Uganda – one where his people have easy access to health care, financial security and can have their faith enriched locally. He has asked for our help to build these hubs of education. Archbishop Lwanga, a direct descendant of St. Kizito, one of the Ugandan Martyrs, is the head of an Archdiocese that is both urban and rural. The problems range from the street children and homelessness found in the city to the lack of immediate health care and education in the poor banana and coffee farm areas. Watch the video below, to hear in his own words, how his people could be served by multi-purpose buildings, receiving health care, education and faith formation all in one place.

In Uganda, the average person earns $1300 per year. Most people are farmers, dependent on the weather and a good harvest to eke out an existence And yet, the spread of the faith “to the ends of the earth” is so important to Ugandan Catholics, that in 2007 they prayed, and sacrificed $10,000 to the Propagation of the Faith. We pray that through the intercession of St. Charles Lwanga and the Ugandan Martyrs their prayers may be answered.
