July Senatus meeting held on 17th July 2022

Centenary of the Founding of Legion of Mary: Celebrations continue in dioceses. Jinja and Soroti Dioceses were congratulated for the wonderful celebrations. Legionaries were informed that the document of the Plenary indulgence is not a prayer but a guide.

Extension: Each Legionary has a role to play in extension-actively participating, offering prayers or contributing to the work. Preparation for the work on Ssese Island is ongoing-those who can catechise were invited to register themselves so as to be part of the team. Each Council was requested to look out for Islands surrounding them so that evangelisation can be done.

Katikamu Curia under Kasana-Luweero Comitium and Madera Curia under Soroti Diocese had been formed.

Spiritual Directors Conference-Hoima Diocese: The regional Spiritual Directors Conference for Hoima Diocese will take place from 12th-14th August 2022. Preparations are in high gear.

Correspondence from Concilium: Among others, a suggestion was brought up that in the rural areas where the number of men in Legion of Mary is low, Praesidia for men can be started. In honour of the great work done by the Legion in the past 100 years by the founders and members, the President of the Concilium was nominated as a Member of the Pontifical Marian Academy International, involved in promoting devotion to Our Lady and true devotion to her.

Rosaries: Those who can were requested to donate Rosaries so that they can be given out to those who do not have.

All Legionaries were requested to pray for the election of the Senatus President due August 2022 Senatus meeting.

In the meeting, reports from Lira Comitium and Gulu Tertiary Institutions Curia were read. We received a report from Mary Comfort of the Afflicted Praesidium, Kigo Prison.

Solome Nkeesa: Being July, in the Mass before the Senatus meeting led by Rev. Fr. Aloysius Ddumba, we prayed for soul of Sr. Solome Nkeesa who donated the land where the Senatus meetings take place. Sr. Solome died on July 17, 2000.
