Archbishop Kaziimba Wants Christians at the Forefront of Development

The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, His Grace Stephen Kaziimba Mugalu, has challenged Christians to invest their earnings in income-generating activities to boost the development of their communities.

Kaziimba was speaking on Thursday in Iganga District at the function to launch the construction of the Three Billion Shillings St. Peter’s Cathedral. Construction works of the estimated 5,000-seater Cathedral are expected to be completed in three years’ time. 

Kaziimba said that the Church should partner with the government in agitating poverty eradication through engaging in income-generating activities.

During the ceremony, 27 Million Shillings was raised for the construction of the Cathedral.

Archbishop Kaziimba rallied the Christians to support the construction of the Cathedral since it will accommodate a large number of congregants, compared to the current church which hosts less than 1,000 Christians.

Kaziimba also asked members of the public to support both the Church and government projects.

Kaziimba also commissioned the Central Busoga Diocese Mother’s Union maize mill in Nakalama Sub County, in Iganga District. He implored families to involve themselves in income-generating activities as a means of reducing poverty in households, which is the main driver of domestic violence.

The Busoga Diocesan Secretary, Patrick Kemba says that they have rallied each of the more than 500,000 Anglican Christians to contribute 10,000 Shillings for the construction of the Cathedral.
