Initiatives that the Catholic Church in Uganda is undertaking in education, health, and socio-economic development were among the series of matters discussed during the recent Plenary Assembly of the Catholic Bishops in the East African nation.
In a statement shared with ACI Africa Sunday, June 19, members of the Uganda Episcopal Conference (UEC) report about their six-day meeting at St. Augustine Institute (SAI), Nzambya, that concluded on June 11.
“The main concern of the Bishops was evangelization through education, medical, social and economic development,” the members of UEC say in their statement that is dated Saturday, June 18, and add, “The progress of the institutions, challenges and future plans were noted.”
Among the institutions aiding the process of evangelization in Uganda, they say, include the Catholic Secretariat with its departments, the Centenary Bank and Cente Group, the Uganda Catholic Management and Training Centre (UCMTI), and the Uganda Martyrs University (UMU).
Other Catholic institutions established aid evangelization in the East African nation are the Interservice and J.W. Interservices Ltd, the Pax Insurance Ltd, and the Priests’ Medical Scheme.
