Ddegeya lies at the suburbs of Bombo, Luweero district, Uganda; it is one of the first regions in the country, where the Orthodox word was heard. Thence comes Jonah, the Metropolitan of Uganda. There are many faithful under the guidance of the commissioner Fr. John Kibuuka. Orthodox primary, middle and high schools and an orphanage for 1,500 children also operate there.
The Church in Uganda is crowded with young people, which constitutes a great hope for the future. For this reason, it was necessary to build another church for the region, named after Saints Constantine and Helen, equals to the Apostles. After various legal delays, the project stopped in 2011. The economic crunch Greece had to face with resulted in a further suspension of the project.
This year, with the blessing of His Eminence the Metropolitan Jonah, we decided to complete the construction of the Church and we hope that by providence of God we’ll be able to pay off the remainder of € 22,100 until the end of 2014.
Please, consider helping us to roof the youthful flock of Ddegeya. Even a penny helps.Shortlink to the project: http://orthodoxmission.org.gr/?p=6158
The church in July 2012, when the wors have stopped.
The church in May 2014; fitting of fixed light glasses at the roof openings as well as doors and windows, plastering to internal and external walls, casting of the concrete floor slab to internal floor are needed for completion.
External and internal plastering was completed and glasses were put at the roof openings. Help us continue.
The construction of the church came to an end and now the faithful are finally able to get there and bring their supplications to the holy God. We gratefully thank all the thoughtful donors who helped us make this project a reality.
