CARDINAL Emmanuel Wamala of Uganda, a man who shares the sufferings of his people, visited Brisbane archdiocese earlier this month to tell their story.
Cardinal Wamala was in Brisbane from October 4-11 as a guest of Catholic Mission, visiting schools and parishes.
One of the highlights was a Mass of thanksgiving and remembrance at Holy Cross Church, Wooloowin, on Brisbane’s northside.
The aim was for Catholic Mission to thank those who had contributed to the organisation and to pray for Catholic Mission supporters who have died.
Cardinal Wamala was principal celebrant and about 200 people attended, as well as children from Holy Cross School, Wooloowin and Holy Rosary School, Windsor.
Cardinal Wamala and Catholic Mission director for Brisbane archdiocese, Mercy Sister Mary Lowcock, said the cardinal was particularly pleased to meet so many young people at schools around the archdiocese.
His aim was to thank the people of the archdiocese for supporting Catholic Mission and its work in African countries like Uganda, and to appeal for more help.
