Following the address made by the President of the Republic of Uganda, on the 22nd September, 2021, the second phase of the lockdown that had seen Churches closed for 60 days was relaxed. Permission was granted to open Churches and utmost 200 people are allowed to worship God in a Church at a time provided they can follow the SOPs.
We are very grateful to God. We thank members for the prayers and congratulate you upon reaching this far. We can now resume Legion of Mary activities after a lockdown period of four months. The Officers of Councils/Praesidia are advised to consult Spiritual Directors before starting meetings, for proper guidance.
As we are all aware, the Centenary Celebrations of Legion of Mary were inaugurated on the 7th September, 2021. Mass was celebrated at Nsambya Parish presided over by Bishop Paul Ssemogerere, the Apostolic Administrator of Kampala Archdiocese, Bishop of Kasana Luwero and Chairman of the Lay Apostolate Commission. Due to the Corona Virus Pandemic, Legionaries were represented by the Spiritual Directors and some Officers of the Councils. The year of Celebrations will come to an end in September 2022.
We are therefore calling upon Councils to organise the Celebrations at all levels following the guidelines given and in consultation with the Senatus.
The next Senatus meeting will be held (as usual) on the third Sunday of the month i.e., 17th October, 2021 at Kiwumulo Bunamwaya and all the Officers of Councils affiliated to Senatus are invited to attend.
May Mary Immaculate, Mediatrix of all Graces pray for us.
God bless you.
