On Sunday 26th May 2019 Christians from Namirembe Diocese and beyond gathered at Mulungo Island to celebrate the life of Musa Mukasa who was butchered at this place. The service was led by Bishop Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira assisted by Ven. John Gitta Kavuma-the Archdeacon of Mengo, the Diocesan Secretary Can. Kaweesa and other priests plus Lay Readers
The guest preacher of the day was Rt. Rev. Dr. Festus Kwasi Yeboah, and his wife Felicia Yeboah Bishop of Sunyani Anglican Diocese of Ghana, West Africa.
In his sermon he said Martyrs are people who stick to the truth and that’s what Musa Mukasa died for. He went on to say that the first Christian Martyr was Stephen who St. Paul said that he witnesses his death.
He said that even today christians in many parts of the world are under persecution and this will continue as long as there are people who are not interested in seeing the gospel being spread to all people of the world.
He challenged Christians to always be ready to undergo suffering for the sake of Christ. “What can you do when you are faced with such problems?” He paused a question to the congregation.
The Archdeacon of Mengo thanked Equity Bank for donating 2m shillings towards the function and also for attending. He thanked security organs for securing the place.
He said that the visiting Bishop had opened a way for friendship and partnership with Mengo Archdeaconry and Namirembe Diocese.
