The Archbishops Message

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, the Most Rev. Dr. Samuel Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu has appealed to Christians to guard against superficial acclaims of Christ, in which Christians receive Jesus Christ, but later go back to committing sins.

The Archbishop was speaking at Thorncroft Chapel Kyaggwe (Uganda Christian University), on his pastoral visits to the Diocese to Kampala. “Many people profess Christ, but they disappear in the crowds when situation changes,” he said.
The Archbishop was referring to crowds that welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem, but later ordered for his crucifixion on the cross. Dr. Kaziimba implored the congregation to surrender to God and never to hide in the crowd because of tough situations.

“Tough times do happen, but it’s not the end of it all. Good Friday was heavy for Jesus but Easter brought good tidings” The Archbishop said. The Archbishop was accompanied by the Diocesan Secretary, Rev. Canon John Awodi.
In his welcoming remarks, the University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Aaron Mushengyezi informed the Archbishop that Uganda Christian University is planning to construct a permanent sanctuary for worship purposes only.
He commended the Church of Uganda for the putting in place UCU Sunday, a day dedicated to pray, mobilise and support UCU financially.

He requested for more support, so that UCU, especially the Theological Training school can keep growing and also help children of the Clergy who get fees challenges.
