Dear Friends and Parishioners!

Let us all rejoice in the Lord, for our savior has been born in the world. Today true peace has come down to us from heaven.

Long ago there lived a wise and good king who loved his people. He wanted to know how they lived and wanted particularly to know about their hardships. Disguised and dressed in the clothes of a beggar, he used to visit the homes of the poor. No one whom he visited ever guessed he was their ruler.

Today the 19th October 2014 World Mission Sunday, the Holy Cross that has been erected at Mbuya has been blessed by His Grace Archbishop Michael August Blume S.V.D, the Apostolic Nuncio in Uganda. The building of the Cross started on the 28th July 2013 after a brief meeting with Mr. Patrick Loti, the artist who had been recommended to me by the Provincial Superior of the Comboni Missionaries Fr. Silvester Hategek’Imaana to whom I had mentioned my desire to erect a cross in this Parish of Mbuya.

The history of a parish Church is not the history of the Parish Community. But both histories, like many other great stories, hence a great deal in common; they are written by the personal stories of a great number of people. The Parish Church of an alive Christian community however, becomes the core where the drama of life unfolds and the different aspects of a hard but fascinating experience become a celebration.

The humble but steady beginning

In 1960 a group of missionaries took up residence at Mbuya Hill. They were known as Verona Fathers who are now known as Comboni Missionaries. They came to Kampala at the invitation of the Bishop of Jinja-Kampala with its Cathedral at Nsambya, the Rt. Rev. Vincent Billington who donated 8 hectares of land east of the City to them to set up a mission.

Bishop Daniel Comboni, their founder, had died in Khartoum in 1881. Two weeks before his death, he had written: “I have to confess that I have never been better endowed than now with true tested missionaries and sisters. They are all steadfast solid and unshakable in trials for this reason my plan which is a plan of God is to take the Gospel to the area of Great Lakes and Mountains that touch the Moon.”
