The President welcomed members to the meeting. Special welcome was accorded to the visitors from South Sudan, Br. William Lado, President of Regina Mundi Curia, Catholic Archdiocese of Juba, South Sudan and Br. Suubi Richard, South Sudan Correspondent.

Legionaries were thanked for taking part in the pilgrimage to Kenya to commemorate the 78th death anniversary of Venerable Edel Quinn. Different councils had organised mass to pray for her beatification.

The centenary Celebrations continue in different parts of the Country. We received reports of the celebrations that took place at Gulu Archdiocese and Tororo Archdiocese. In the two, we legionaries were warmly received and the Archbishops accorded a warm reception. We had over 1000 and 2000 Legionaries present respectively at the two celebrations.

Next Centenary celebrations will be in Kasana Luweero and Moroto Dioceses on 21st May and 22nd May 2022 respectively.

On 20th May 2022 the Senatus of Uganda will mark 60 years since it was inaugurated. Mass will take place at St. Augustine Chapel, Makerere University starting at 5pm.

In the meeting, we received 3 new Curia that had been formed from Soroti Diocese-Mukongoro, Kobwin and Koloin Curiae. The officers of the three Curiae were ratified at the meeting.

About the extension work in Ssese Islands, the first round of work had been successful and the Parish Priest suggested that teams of Legionaries be sent every 3 months and it would require approximately UGX. 5 million which Senatus did not have. Members suggested that different Councils contribute and well-wishers so that the work be accomplished.

Extension work is on going in Soroti Diocese, Arua Diocese and Gulu Archdiocese. Legionaries were encouraged to support the different works spiritually and financially.

The visitors from South Sudan extended greetings from His Grace Stephen Ameyu Martin Mulla, the Archbishop of Juba and thanked us for the great work were doing in South Sudan to support the Legion of Mary.

Legionaries were reminded of the 24-hour rosary initiative that they had registered for.
