E-mail Print

From the 21st to 26th November has taken place the General Canonical Visitation of the Mission of Uganda, which belongs to the Province of Krakow/PL. This Mission has been initiated in the year 2000 and at present there are 6 friars-priests /Polish and 3 Postulants /Ugandans.

Both communities of the Mission - Kakooge, from 2001 and Matugga. from 2010 - have developed the following activities: parochial, educational (various schools) and caritative. The caritative one is expressed through offering help to the poor children (adoption at a distance), to the sick (medical clinic) and human promotion (various projects to upgrade people's standard of living).
The community of Matugga does not yet have a proper friary and church structures - the construction process of it has already started. The friars live in a house offered to them by a family from the Parish which they are serving.
In the year 2009 the friars have started recruting and formation of the local candidates to our Order - this process is being done in collaboration with our Missione in: Kenya /Ruiri and Tanzania /Arusha.
The next important step in the history of the Mission will be creation of the Provincial Delegation - this will  surely contribute towards greater stability and development.
