Namugongo - Kira Town, Kampala Uganda
Don Bosco Child And Life Mission - CALM
After the Eucharistic Celebration, we all moved out for a procession led by our Brass Band to Kira Town which is 3km away from our Community. Two boys moved ahead of us holding a banner with the inscription “Bicentenary Celebrations of the Birth of Saint John Bosco”. Four boys also followed carrying a decorated portrait of Saint John Bosco which was made by Bro. Wantan John Baptist. Our band followed plus the boys and the neighbouring Christians who always pray with us. Those with cars followed us slowly from behind. The boys marched to the different tunes played by our band with lots of joy and happiness.
This prompted the by-standers to join and walk spontaneously with us and some were seen inquiring why the march? And we told them the occasion. On reaching Kira Town, business people plus the passengers in taxies were amazed and excited as well on seeing the boys march with vigor and great joy
