by Uganda Orthodox Church

May our Lord Jesus Christ be glorified! The people of Rwemiriro village, located in the western part of Uganda, were prayerfully guided to join Orthodoxy through engaging in the sacrament of Holy Baptism. The decision of so many to join in the Orthodox faith comes after a long evangelism mission by Rev. Fr. Aristotle Asiimwe to spread the gospel to the western part of Uganda, where Orthodoxy had not yet reached the Ankole region

Upon blessings from H.E Archbishop Jonah of the of the Holy Metropolis of Kampala and all Uganda, this holy endeavor saw many souls guided to the Orthodox faith. Over 200 people joined the church, where among the baptized were infants, youth and the elderly. The community commended His Eminence for allowing Fr. Aristotle Asiimwe to come and engage with them, to quench their thirst for Orthodoxy.

This community was started in September of 2017 through the acquisition of a 4.2 acre of land just along the hills of Ntungamo-Kabale high way. Currently the people of Rwemiriro village are worshiping through a temporarily structure, which was set up through the efforts of the people after longing to have a place of worship. There is a lot of opportunity for growth in this up and coming community, where the people have begun working the land, farming crops such as maize, ground nuts and beans to develop the area with the hopes that more permanent structures will soon be built.

With so many in the new members of the Orthodox Church, there are a lot of developmental plans for this area ranging from a secondary school to be named after St. Paisios, a hospital to be named after St. Porfirios and a community center. We pray that this region turns into a full deanery through discovering new communities and setting up different Orthodox Church parishes. May God bless our brothers and sisters in Uganda and all over the world as more followers join the faith and hear the word of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
