Ahead of this year’s World Mission Sunday on October 18, an official of the Uganda Episcopal Conference (UEC) has explained how Church leaders will engage the media in marking the event in the East African nation.
"We plan to offer a series of presentations on Mission Day and the mission of the Church on our Ugandan Catholic television (UC TV),” the National Director of the Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS) in Uganda, Fr. Pontian Kaweesa has been quoted as saying in a September 29 report.
He adds, "We will also produce a live broadcast on Radio Maria to talk about Mission Day in the current situation of the coronavirus pandemic.”
“We have written to all the Bishops and diocesan directors of the PMS to urge the faithful of their respective dioceses to pray for the mission of the Church and to live a novena before Mission Sunday in their homes and communities,” the Ugandan Cleric further says.
Ahead of the day, PMS officials in Uganda have also facilitated the creation of two digital posters with the theme of Mission Day 2020 "Here I am, send me" (Isaiah 6: 8), the 57-year-old Cleric says, adding that the posters will be shared through various digital platforms.
