MPs Pledge To Support Church Of Uganda As It Marks 60 Years Of Existence

Members of Parliament have pledged to support Church Of Uganda as they mark 60 years of existence. Speaker Jacob Oulanyah ed the MPs.

The MPs met with the leadership of the Anglican Church at a function hosted by the Archbishop of Uganda, Dr. Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, at his residence in Namirembe, Kampala.

During the meeting, the MPs discussed ways of supporting the Church in its different developments. The Archbishop encouraged the MPs to join and volunteer in different ministries.

This will apparently ensure that the Church is in good financial standing. His remarks were responding to concerns by some Members of Parliament that they had not been reached to support the church.

He said MPs, just like other Christians, are the church.

“In western Uganda, I found a government minister who was serving as a warden in a church. This was very interesting. I was challenged when I saw him ushering people. Let me encourage you, MPs, to continue participating in your local communities, in schools and churches.”

Oulanyah welcomed this and said it’s probably time for the MPs to take part in church programs.

“I think let us get our act together. The time has come for us as parliamentarians to stand firm with the Church. Support the archbishop and support the projects of the Church. Let’s be part of this by action and not only by words,” Oulanyah said.
