Christians, Politicians Urged To Support Church Projects
By Our Reporter
Mbarara – The Archdeacon for greater Mbarara Rev. Can. Bobs Nathan Mwesigye has implored Christians, Politicians and government workers to always give support to churches especially in construction projects.
While addressing the media after the Church service, Mwesigye said that Churches cannot operate or develop without support from the Christians, politicians and the government institutions. He said that the development of Churches must come as result of cooperation and unity between Christians, government and Church leaders. He urged Christians to never separate from their priests, that they should work with church leaders and support them for contributions towards church projects and constructions.
Apparently, Nyamityobora Church of Uganda is under construction and according to Rev. Munyaneza the remaining work demands about Ugx132m to be accomplished. “Once Christians or government distance themselves from their Church leaders, the Church will never be built, the construction will delay even about 92 years under construction. Therefore be closer to us, work with us and support us to do the work of the Lord,” said Rev. Mwesigye.
Christians and priests were also asked to protect Church properties especially the lands that belong to Church. Can. Mwesigye further encouraged the public to stop bringing politics into Church matters. That they should focus on Christianity and work for the Lord.
These remarks were made during the ceremony at Nyamityobora Parish Church of Uganda over the weekend when Rev. Emmanuel Munyaneza was fully elevated as the Parish Reverend for Nyamityobora Church of Uganda. Munyaneza was installed by the Archdeacon Rev. Mwesigye, the Archdeacon of All Saints Church. Munyaneza was formerly working as Curate of All Saints Church before he was appointed as Reverend for Nyamityobora Parish Church. He was taught at Mbarara Municipal School for about 10 years before he joined the clergy.
While addressing journalists, he asked Christians to support him and complete the construction of Nyamityobora Church. He pledged to protect all the properties that belong to Nyamityobora Church of Uganda.
