As a practice of the Orthodox Church in Uganda, every Saturday of the Great Lent immediately after the Divine Liturgy of Saint Basil, Orthodox Faithful bring all the Catechumen and gather at their respective parishes so as the be joined into the Orthodox Faith through the Mystery of Baptism.
It was no different today when close to 30 persons both the young and the elderly were baptized at St. Nicholas Cathedral in a baptism service presided over Metropolitan Jonah Lwanga.
It was a joyous moment for all the baptized when they engaged in the mystery of Holy Unction and immediately received Holy Communion which is the body and blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who died on the Cross and resurrected on the third day for the redemption of mankind from sin.
The Metropolitan urged the Godparents to always remind the newly baptized that one of the biggest sins they should always desist from is DECEIT and encouraged them to uphold the truth in all the days of their life.
