NAMIRALI ANNIVERSARY FOR MATIA BATEGANYA THE SUNDAY NEXT TO 28TH MAY – IGANGA PARISH

Namirali is a sub-center in Iganga parish. In 2016, 28th May, there was an attack on catholic Christians by some disgruntled men of the family of their late father who donated land for church use and they killed Mr Matia Bateganya and cut with pangas and pierced with spears and knives other Christians who were present in bid to make them yield the land of the church to their families but in vain. Some Christians took refuge in nearby families of relatives of the attackers who sympathizers with the Christians.

As a result they were hunted by the police who up to date there are some who are on the run while others have been presented in court.

Every year the diocese will be celebrate that 28th (as for now unless otherwise redetermined) day of May in honor of the christian who died for his faith and those who were injured severely as they stood their ground for their faith.

This year 2018 we will have the eve led by the Catholic charismatic renewal with an overnight prayer. This will be followed by the main day prayers led by the bishop of the diocese of Jinja, The rite Rev. Bishop Charles Martin Wamika. Mass will start at 10 am local time.

May God grant graces for all the pilgrims of that day.
