At the same function, over 300 people converted to Catholicism and now await baptism that will take place on Easter Eve.

The Holy Mass was led by Vicar General of Kampala Archdiocese, Msgr Charles Kasibante who represented the Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga.

A 23-year- old Romie Masaba, of from Bugonga Entebbe said:  “My mother approves my baptism. I love God and I know He loves me.”

Moses Dhikusooka, 27, a resident of Wakiso who converted from Islam said: “I converted and nobody inspired me. I realized that the Catholic Church fits my philosophy.”

23-year- old Mariam Nabalumba, a resident of Busega said: “I always told my parents who are Muslims that I want to convert to Catholicism. I attended Catholic primary schools and modeled me.”
