Christians Walk to Mark Martyrs Day

From Uganda-

More than 500 pilgrims from different corners last Saturday participated in 'The Walk of Faith' to mark Uganda Martyrs Day.

According to Archbishop of Kampala Archdiocese Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, the walk is part of the spiritual preparation for the Martyrs Day Celebrations on June 3.

The 'Walk of Faith' was flagged off at Munyonyo Martyrs shrine by Archbishop Dr Lwanga and the first Deputy Prime Minister, Gen Moses Ali, who represented the Prime Minister Mr Ruhakana Rugunda.

The symbolic pilgrimage kicked-off at about 9.00am from Munyonyo Martyrs Shrine with a word of prayer and ended at St. Matia Mulumba Parish in Old Kampala.

"The symbolic pilgrimage walk under the theme; " Stand firm in the faith that we have been taught" (Colossina 2:7) which calls on the faithful and pilgrims to be strong witnesses in faith, personal lives, families, places of work and all areas that their daily lives influence," Archbishop Lwanga said.
