Family life

At Munyonyo , we  strongly affirm that Faith is first taught at home. The home is the first small Christian community and  the backbone of the church.

Following the example of Andrew Kaggwa whose home became the place for  church meetings when the missionaries were expelled. Andrew and his wife Claire (the  first Catholic church wedding in Uganda ) were a team;  a mission team with Andrew teaching the catechumens and Claire doing hospitality and with this family’s hardwork and prayers, the church grew phenomenally. Andrew and Claire are good examples of how a Christian family should be.

Ladies, if you are thinking of marriage and praying for a husband; a loving caring god fearing husband, come to place of Andrew Kaggwa  martyrdom and pray for his intercession.

Men, if you are wanting  to be a good husband and also praying to get a good wife who is supportive, committed, faithful to church and  a helpmeet, hospitable so your home can be an example to the others, then come to Munyonyo and by his tomb, pray for Andrew’s intercession.

Prayer for a good Husband or wife.
O Jesus, lover of the young, the dearest Friend I have, in all confidence I open my heart to You to beg Your light and assistance in the important task of planning my future. Give me the light of Your grace, that I may decide wisely concerning the person who is to be my partner through life. Dearest Jesus, send me such a one whom in Your divine wisdom You judge best suited to be united with me in marriage. May her/his character reflect some of the traits of Your own Sacred Heart. May s/he be upright, loyal, pure, sincere and noble, so that with united efforts and with pure and unselfish love we both may strive to perfect ourselves in soul and body, as well as the children it may please You to entrust to our care. Bless our friendship before marriage, that sin may have no part in it. May our mutual love bind us so closely, that our future home may ever be most like Your own at Nazareth.

O Mary Immaculate, sweet Mother of the young, to your special care I entrust the decision I am to make as to my future wife/husband. You are my guiding Star! Direct me to the person with whom I can best cooperate in doing God’s Holy Will, with whom I can live in peace, love and harmony in this life, and attain to eternal joys in the next.

St. Andrew Kaggwa – pray for us.
