On Sunday September 16th all roads led to the St. Mary’s Church Waltham were Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu attended a Thanksgiving service organized by the Uganda Catholic Community of Boston (UCCB). The service which started around 1pm quickly filled up attracting many Catholics and non Catholics alike who came to join in the Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi in celebrating Sunday Mass.

As a Catholic Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu also participated in the Holy Communion service before standing up to address the Congregation that had stood with him and the #Arua33 during the time they were incarcerated for what he described as treasonable offenses. 

He narrated his ordeal reminding those present that it was only by God’s grace that he was able to survive it all. He also paid homage to his father who inspite of having many wives had always insisted that they attended Mass something that he said had allowed him to grow his faith lord.

He particularly acknowledged the Boston Community and those Diaspora Communities around the World that demonstrated in support of his freedom and that of his co-accused as a something that had greatly impacted him. He also extended his condolence message to those members whose families had been affected in one way or the other by the recent events in Uganda singling out Yasin Kawuma his driver and Mohammad Kirumira who paid the ultimate sacrifices. 

He then went on to refer to the many biblical teachings as a source of truth and justice before drawing similarities to the injustices many face today. He noted that many had moved to diaspora inpart because conditions back home didn’t allow for them to prosper. Today many are fending for their families and loved ones sending every hard earned penny to allow their family members live better lives. He acknowledged that the Diaspora the world over is full of the best brains that have been exposed and can be great agents of change we greatly desire back home.

He concluded his remarks by acknowledging that the truth will always set us free and he had chosen a path to make a difference as a Uganda but not a Politician because he strongly believed that we as the people can influence the change we want and that this collective voice is what has inspired the People Power Movement to take root in Uganda.  

Soon after the church service Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu later met with the Mayor of Waltham before proceeding to the Embassy Suites town-hall meet organized by the Uganda Boston Islamic Association. Below are some of images from the church service held in Waltham, Massachusetts.
