Christians at St. Andrew’s Kancereere COU have been warned against Keeping in the company of members of the community who are known to be lazy and spend their entire time sitting in bars taking alcohol while indulging in gossiping.
The warning was sounded by Canon Ben Kuriigamba, the head of Laity in The Diocese of Kinkiizi at a confirmation service that took place today 27th September 2022 at the church.
53 candidates who comprised 33 females and 20 Males hailing from Kancereere, Karambi, and Karambi Sub Parishes were confirmed into the Anglican faith.
Drawing from the Theme: Work hard to earn a living, which is derived from 2 Thessalonians 3:35, Canon Kurigamba noted that a lazy person discredits God’s workmanship
This service was led by the Rt. Rev. Dan Zoreka, the Bishop of the Diocese of Kinkiizi, in his words of encouragement asked Christians to cultivate the fertile lands in the area to get food to sustain their families.
Kihembe Kancereere community is renowned for Palm Oil and the Bishop Zoreka encouraged members of the community to engage in Palm Oil Tree growing which is a profitable venture.
The confirmation service was preceded by the official opening of the brand new residence of the parish priest which was constructed in a period of three years and four months.
The parish also has 4 acres of coffee from which it expects to start earning some money by next year.
In this same service, 4 children were baptized from the Greater family of the Late Munuubi.
