The Right Reverend Onesimus Asiimwe, the Bishop of North Kigezi Diocese, has called on Christians to avoid sectarianism. These remarks were made during his first visit at All Saints Church Rujumbura Archdeaconry in Rukungiri.
During this visit, Bishop Asiimwe confirmed 490 Christians in their faith, and a significant number of individuals accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior.
Bishop Asiimwe expressed that during his pastoral visits to the seven Archdeaconries, he has witnessed a revival of faith, with numerous people accepting Jesus as their personal savior. He acknowledged the challenges that had disrupted this revival in the past but was pleased to see it returning to the North Kigezi Diocese. He noted that churches have been reopened for prayer and reconciliation of sins.
The Bishop extended his gratitude to All Saints Church Rukungiri for their initiative in establishing a commercial house, led by the Father’s Union. This building will soon be occupied by Equity Bank, providing a source of income for All Saints Church Rukungiri.
Furthermore, Bishop Asiimwe urged parents to prioritize their children’s education, highlighting the concern that boys have fallen behind academically, making it difficult to raise responsible men for strong families in the future.
Ven Amatsiko Niwegariho, the Archdeacon of All Saints Church, praised the Bishop for confirming 490 Christians, with the majority being pupils from primary schools in the Rukungiri municipality area. These pupils came from various schools, including Nyakibale Parents Primary School, Nyakibale Upper and Lower Primary Schools, Rukungiri Universal School, Modern Primary School, and St. Paul’s Primary School, among others.
