Our dear Spiritual Director of Senatus of Uganda, Rev. Fr. Expedito Walakira has passed on.
Fr. has been a Spiritual Director of Senatus for 28 years and spent all the 42 years of his Priesthood as a Spiritual Director of the Legion of Mary strongly dedicated to the service of our Lady.
He visited the Concilium Legionis in Dublin, Ireland in 2007 together with other Officers.
As a Spiritual Director, he sacrificed all his time and was always available for any Legion of Mary Commitment. At all time, his office was open for Legionaries.
When his health weakened, Rev. Fr. Ronnie Mubiru was appointed as his vice. Fr. Walakira continued to offer himself in anyway he could to support the Legion of Mary.
The very last visit Senatus Officers paid to him, he was grateful to all Legionaries for the prayers offered to him especially through the intercession of Servant of God Frank Duff.
We extend our condolences to the Kampala Archdiocese, family and friends of Fr.Walakira. May his Soul rest in eternal peace.
We shall have Requiem Mass for his soul as Legionaries on Wednesday, 19th May 2021 starting at 9am led by his Asst., Rev. Fr. Ronnie Mubiru.
On Wednesday at 2pm, we shall have body viewing and Mass at 3pm with the Christians of St. Balikuddembe Mengo-Kisenyi Parish.
The body will remain at Mengo-Kisenyi Parish till Thursday, 20th May 2021 when it will be taken to Nsambya parish for his sendoff. Mass will begin at 12pm.
Legionaries, remember to recite the Legion of Mary prayers for him and for those coming on Thursday for burial, kindly come with candles.
