Believers and Christians from St. Peters Anglican Church of Uganda, Boston gathered for what was a fully packed holy baptism and confirmation service at the First Baptist Church in Belmont. The service was presided over by Bishop Dr. Hannington Mutebi, the Assistant Bishop of Kampala Diocese who was accompanied by his wife Mrs. Milly Mutebi. The event that started with a church service at 1pm ended with a with a dinner luncheon.

Ugandan Diaspora News attended the reception held last evening on May 25th at the Sons of Italy mainhall in Water-town and now brings you some of the highlights that included music, dance and final benediction from the visiting assistant Bishop from Kampala diocese.

St. Peters Church of Uganda began their worship services on the 25 of December, 2006 after a group of Ugandan community elders in Boston approached the Rev. Dr. Alex Kasirye-Musoke  and asked him to lead them into the Anglican communion assisted by other spiritual Anglican leaders from Boston. However a larger part of this congregation has since moved to a new location at the beginning of this year and are now resident on 129 Lexington Street in Belmont.

About St Peter’s Anglican Church of Uganda, Belmont!

We are a Uganda Anglican community based in Boston, USA, who take pride in our being a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion, and roots in the Anglican Church of Uganda which was founded in Uganda in the 1870’s. We adopted the title Anglican Church of Uganda as a way to identify with our Christian tradition articulated in the Uganda Anglican way.

St. Peter’s Faith

St. Peter’s is a theo-centric (God-centered) church believing in God the Creator, Jesus the only begotten Son of God and the Holy Spirit as the teacher and director of our faith. Thus our faith does not, in any way, differ from that of the world-wide Anglican Communion and the Anglican Church of Uganda. It worships in Luganda, the most widely-spoken language in Uganda and maintains the Anglican Church of Uganda tradition from which it draws most of its liturgy and form of worship. It uses the Anglican Church of Uganda prayer book, based on the 1662 Anglican Book of Common Prayer. We invite you to become a member of our congregation – allowing God into your life through our various programs and community outreach efforts.

Please note that the pictorial from the Baptism service will be presented as soon as its availed to us since Ugandan Diaspora News was not able to attend the Baptism/Confirmation service. However we attended the evening luncheon and are glad to share the complete gallery of what transpired.

    Hello Ronnie,

    This is just a clarification. Our Church is known as St Peter’s Anglican Church of Uganda, Boston (not Belmont).
