uganda mission

Renewal Ministries has been asked to lead a Retreat for nearly 400 Ugandan Bishops and Priests in 2015.  We will also conduct leadership formation at the Emmaus Center and a follow-up retreat to the one we held for the Ugandan Parliamentarians in 2014.

Recent Missions in Uganda:

Renewal Ministries assisted with sponsoring a large public rally at Namungongo, the Ugandan Martyr's Shrine in 2013.  The event drew upwards of 30,000 participants and was the major event in Uganda for the Year of Faith. 

In 2012, at the request of Archbishop Ciprian and the National Office of the Charismatic Renewal,  Renewal Ministries conducted training seminars and catechesis at the national seminary in Gbaga. There was also a seminar on evangelization for 100 seminarians there. In addition, there was a Life in the Spirit Seminar for medical students at the National University in Gulu, as well as a national training seminar on deliverance at Emmaus Retreat Center.

 The cost of the 2015 trip is approximately $700 and does not include roundtrip airfare.

 

Ongoing Mission Information

Renewal Ministries began ministering in Uganda in 1995, conducting a Marriage and Family Life Retreat at the Emmaus Center in Katikamu. In 1997, Emmanuel Cardinal Wamala visited Renewal Ministries in Ann Arbor, encouraging our work there and sharing with us the needs of his people. Over the past fourteen years we have continued close collaboration with the Emmaus Center, a thriving Catholic center with ongoing evangelization and discipleship programs, and the Catholic Charismatic office in Uganda. We have returned many times, offering retreats for priests and religious, outdoor rallies, catechist training, evangelization schools, celebrations at the Ugandan Martyrs Shrine, and many other activities.
