The history of our lady of Africa The Comboni Missionaries founded by St. Daniel Comboni who were already working in northern Uganda arrived at Mbuya Kampala in 1960 at the invitation of Bishop of Kampala, Rt. Rev. Vincent Belington, MHM. The Bishop donated to them 8 hectares of land and a small house was built and later on a Chapel to take care of the people from northern Uganda arriving in Kampala while searching for employment. However, it was on 7th October 1966 when the new Bishop of Kampala Emmanuel Nsubuga asked the Comboni Missionaries to start a Parish. In September 1968, the construction of the present Church was started. The foundation stone is blessed by Pope Paul VI on his visit to Uganda in 1969. On 20th September 1970, the newly built church was consecrated to God, in honour of the blessed Mary under the title of “Our Lady Of Africa”. On 28th October 1970, the Arch Bishop appointed the first Parish Priest of Mbuya in the names of Fr. Joseph Bertinazzo and he is joined on the 11th March 1971 by Fr. Paul Serra as curate. Since the beginning of the Parish, 15 priests have served the Parish.

4th Sunday of Lent Homily by Fr Anthony Kibira Kimbowa

Jesus gives sight and insight

Dear brothers and sisters!

The 4th Sunday of Lent (also known as Laetare =Rejoice since Easter is near) invites us to reflect on our identity as Children of Light. We ought to bear in mind that this light is a given one. The ability to see is a very precious gift. Lack of physical sight compromises the quality of life. A person who was born blind has nothing in one’s experience which one can imagine seeing. In fact, in order to imagine, one needs known images as points of reference. Whereas we want to be grateful to God for the ability to make use of our eyes in order to see the beauty of creation, the word of God today invites us to look at our spiritual blindness and let the Light of the World (Jesus) give us sight.

My dear brothers and sisters!

May the peace of of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God the Father and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all!

I take this opportunity to send you my cordial greetings from Mbuya Hill. We are all aware of the uncertainity and the kind of darkness the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) has cast over the entire world. Systems have been forced to a standstill or to certain adjustments. A certain degree of flexibility is demanded of us. All this should remind us that we are entirely dependent on God. Different directives from both civil and religious authorities have been issued. We must follow them because they are meant for the common good. The following are the actual guidelines appropriated to Our Lady of Africa Mbuya Parish:

1. The parish church and all churches within the parish are closed until further notice. This means, there won’t be common gatherings for liturgical prayers. The priests will present your prayers to the Lord. Let us remember that during the Eucharist we join Christ the High Priest as He offers Sacrifice to the Father for the whole world.

2. The daily mass will always be broadcast live at 7.00a.m on:
Website: www.ourladyofafrica.org
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ourladyofafricachurchmbuya
Twitter https://twitter.com/mbuyachurch
YouTube: Our Lady of Africa Mbuya.

3. We shall broadcast two masses on Sundays, i.e. 8.00a.m. (Luganda) and 10.00a.m. (English) also live on our Mbuya Parish website, facebook, twitter and youtube.

4. For daily and Sunday masses you can also tune in to other media like radios and Televisions.

5. We shall share the Sunday Bulletin with the readings and reflections on all our parish platforms.

6. We encourage you to use this time to deepen your prayer life both privately and as a family at home. The family is the basic unit of the Church. Let us pray as families and remain united with the entire Church and the world. Some practical suggestions would be to pray with the word of God, pray the Rosary and the Way of the Cross.

7. Whoever is in need of confession can contact Fr. Anthony Kibira mccj (Parish Priest) 0786966386/0706608119 or Fr. John Bosco Mubangizi mccj (Ass. Parish Priest) 0775084969/0754431732. In case of any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the priests.

8. We appeal to you to follow all the guidelines given by the civil authorities. This is our common battle. We shouldn’t relax in any way.

9. Please avoid spreading any misinformation and contradictory opinions which may cause panic. Let us remain calm and vigilant!

10. If there are any changes we shall update you accordingly.

I wish you all God’s protection. Be assured of my prayers. Be blessed and be a blessing! God is our refuge and strength.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Anthony Kimbowa Kibira mccj

[03/18/20]   My dear brothers and sisters! Greetings from Mbuya Hill. It's difficult for me to imagine that I (your Shepherd) won't have you for the celebration of the Eucharist in the next 32 days. I will send you a better organized text. For the moment I wish to inform you that we are going to follow the directive of the civil authority, i.e. starting with tomorrow we shall NOT gather for mass. We priests shall present all your prayer intentions with the sacrifice of Christ to the Father. Let's remain united in prayer. Courage, the Lord is in control!

Fr. Anthony Kimbowa Kibira mccj, Parish Priest

Welcome ceremony and teaching by Rev. Fr. Vincent Lubega, Parish Priest and Rector of Namugongo Martyrs shrine. He encouraged all to make a resolution to be daughters and sons of God and be mere servants just like Christ who out of his service was rejected and Paid ransom for our sins. We should sacrifice for the sake of our faith and because we love the people around us without necessarily expecting a reward.

We invite you all to take part in this prayer of the Way of the cross starting at 5.30pm. Immediately after there will be teaching about our Faith. The Stations of the Cross bring us closer to Christ as we meditate on the great love He showed for us in His most sorrowful Passion!

REMINDER: We will make our pilgrimage to Namugongo as a Mbuya Parish this Saturday 14th March 2020. Take off time is 7.00am sharp from the cross and Mass at Namugongo will be at 10.00am. We are all invited to participate. Please carry some items that we shall carry as offertory.
