Christians in Sironko District have been urged to embrace development-oriented programs in churches.
This call was made by Asha Nabulo Mafabi who intends to vie for the Sironko District Woman Parliamentary seat in the 2021 general elections. Nabulo was addressing Christians at confirmation and fundraising for Bumasifwa Church of Uganda in Legenya Sub County yesterday.
According to Nabulo, embracing development programs helps in the spiritual, economic and social transformation of Christians.
On the fundraising, 2.5million shillings was raised at a function also attended by North Mbale Diocese Rt. Reverend Samuel Gidudu. Bishop Gidudu said the money will be put towards the construction of a new Cathedral at North Mbale Diocese headquarters in Buhugu Sub County.
Bishop Gidudu said that the construction of the cathedral requires up to four ( 4 )billion shillings. He asked Christians to contribute to the cause.
