dc.description.abstractThe authors of this book have attempted to assemble in one volume basic information about the Church in the setting of the Uganda social fabric, in many respects applicable to the African situation south of the Sahara, with some local variations. They have tracked the Church’s evolution right from mid nineteenth century when explorers and colonizers plotted their advance into the continent then referred to as the Dark Continent – for development and business. Alongside these missions for exploration and business exploitation came the missions for evangelization... The Catholic Church in Uganda thriving on the seed of the blood of the Uganda Martyrs, is well entrenched in the community. The clerical profession has been well accepted and continues to attract a good number of young people, and shows increasing growth. The Church is exerting its moral influence on national policy; it has impacted in a major way on the development of educational, health and other social services in the country. Outstandingly, the Church in Africa has started sending out missionaries to the West where often personalities there refer to the status of their countries as post-Christian. They need to be re-evangelized (By His Eminence Emmanuel Cardinal Wamala, Archbishop Emeritus of Kampala Archdiocese).en_US
