O God, Almighty and Merciful Father,
In your will, you gave us Jesus Christ your only begotten Son, as our Savior and Good Shepherd.
To continue this Mission for the salvation of all humanity,
He chose the Apostles, thus unifying all people into one Family through the Gospel.
As we pray for the growth of this very unity, we thank you for giving us Archbishop Paul Ssemogerere as our new Shepherd in Kampala Archdiocese.
May you help him in this service to strengthen us into that very Unity of Christ your Son, as to grow into his likeness, till we come to that perfect union of the Trinity in Eternity.
May Mother Mary, star of Evangelization and Our Ancestors, the Uganda Martyrs intercede for us.
Our Father…, Hail Mary…, Glory be to the Father….
St. Paul the Apostle, Pray for us
