Kigezi Diocese clerics urged on Sunday school
The Emeritus Bishop of Kigezi Diocese the Rt Rev George Katwesigye has challenged the clerics that there is a need to concentrate on Sunday school children if they are to grow with good Christian virtues through their life.
Emeritus Bishop Katwesigye noted that it is very important to expose children as early as possible to the Bible and Sunday school church is the only foundation to inculcate them with good manners which will enable them to be important people in the future.
He stressed that the future church will be based on the Sunday school church teachings that must be established since it is one of the tools to instill spiritual values among children at a tender age.
Bishop Katwesigye urged all religious leaders to have Sunday school sermons at every church citing that even Jesus Christ once said that let children come go to him because the Kingdom of God is for those who are like children.
He made remarks on Sunday 24 in his sermon during the installation of Rev Amanya Ambrose the parish priest of St Peter’s Kiyanja COU in Rukanda Archdeaconry South Ankole Diocese.
Bishop Katwesigye asked the new installed Rev Amanya Ambrose to always flock the Sunday school church noting that without it, the church will be at stake in forthcoming years.
He added that it’s not good for any church to start Sunday service before praying for the children and their leaders.
The Archdeacon of Rukanda archdeaconry Ven Rev Eliasaph Kamugisha who presided over the installation ceremony appealed to Rev Amanya and wife Lillian to be good Sheppard of God’s flock if they are to full fill their calling.
Ven Rev Kamugisha hailed the Christians of Kiyanja for the cooperation which enabled them to develop in all ways since Rev Amanya was posted at Kiyanja COU three years ago.
Rev Ambrose Amanya thanked his parents for being exemplary as servants of God which inspired him also to join the priesthood.
Rev Amanya also commended St Peter’s Kiyanja COU leaders for being hospitable and committed to serving God diligently.
Earlier Bishop Katwesigye baptized 3 children including Nuwahereza Matthias of Rev Ambrose and Lillian Amanya.
Christians of Kiyanja awarded gifts of appreciation to Rev Amanya Ambrose and was assisted by lay reader Benias Tumwekwatse Kashaija.
Meanwhile, at St James Kakungu COU parish, believers were reminded not to be taken by what they are passing through instead trust in God for them to become victorious.
This was said by Jenifer Ndyabarema during the thanksgiving of Jovia Tumusiime a wife to Wilson Tumusiime the security guard at Radio Ankole.
Ms Ndyabarema asked them to patient and obedient to God rather than succumbing to the World winds.
