Uganda Mission Staff Promote Love in the Family with a Valentine’s Day Party

3/24/2014

UgandaFor the first time, our Mission Staff in Uganda held an event on Valentine’s Day to promote love within the family. What is more beautiful than giving couples the opportunity to have some time out together; to get all dressed up for each other; to celebrate; and most importantly to pray together?

Father Joseph Sebyala, C.S.C., presided at the opening Mass and his homily focused on the Gospel passage John 15:12-14, “Love one another as you love yourself,” Father Joseph emphasized the importance of love, trust and being faithful to each other for a strong and peaceful marriage.

UgandaCouples had much to dine on, refreshing drinks, and each couple received a rose from our Director Father Christopher Lekitirich, C.S.C.

The more than 75 couples in attendance had a great surprise when an HCFM staffer, Kimera David Evans proposed to his girlfriend Elizabeth as he promised to lover her till death do them part.

Our Mission Staff are already planning next year’s event to once again give couples an opportunity to strengthen the bonds of their marriages.
