December Senatus meeting held on 12th December 2021

Members were welcomed to the last meeting of the year 2021. The December meeting happened on the 2nd Sunday of the month because by 3rd Sunday, transport costs are too high making it hard for members to travel.

We were informed that Rev. Fr. Ronnie Mubiru had been appointed Senatus Spiritual Director effective 29th November 2021.

Different Praesidia had celebrated the Centenary. For a guide, kindly read the article on the Centenary Celebrations.
About the Centenary memorial Magazine, it is in its final stages. Unfortunately, we have not yet raised enough advertisers that will help us have a reduced cost of production. We call upon all Legionaries, incase you have a company or a friend willing to advertise in our national magazine, send an email to senatusofuganda@gmail.com. We are hoping that the magazine will be launched on 21st January 2022 on the 63rd death anniversary of Servant of God Alphonsus Lambe

We were requested to pray for the construction of the Senatus headquarters. We are waiting for allocation of land.

Extension work is being done in the Eastern and Northern Uganda. In Soroti Diocese, Kumi deanery is being done by Kampala Comitium B. In Soroti and Ngora deaneries, it is being done by St. Matia Mulumba Curia and Lugazi Comitium respectively. Plan has been laid for Kaberamaido Deanery by Jinja Comitium and work will start early 2022. Members were asked to support this extension work in all ways possible.

Each Praesidium in Uganda was reminded to pray for the soul of Rev. Fr. Expedito Walakira, our former Spiritual Director who did a lot of work for the Legion of Mary.

Jinja and Lira Comitia had vesting with the miraculous medals and were to buy more and distribute to Curiae. Legionaries were advised to do the same.

Prayers of the Legion of Mary on the tessera do not change. There has been a common practice of adding the name of the deceased person in the concluding prayers. That should stop. Let us follow the prayers as they are.

Praesidia were reminded to offer a Spiritual bouquet for Rt. Rev. Raphael Wokorach, bishop of Nebbi, Most Rev. Lambert Bainomugisha of Mbarara and Most Rev. Paul Ssemogerere of Kampala.

In the meeting, we had visitors from Yambio Diocese, South Sudan who stay in Uganda. They reminded us to always pray the rosary and to support their country.

We received reports from St. Mary’s Centenary, Kireka Curia and Kampala Comitium A. Br. Aloysious Kant Kaahwa was reelected as the 2nd Assistant Secretary for his second term.
