The Catholic Church has cancelled the 2020 Uganda Martyrs Day annual celebrations that were scheduled for 3rd June due to coronavirus pandemic.

The Martyrs Day celebrations were scheduled for May 29th for the youth and June 3 the main function but now coronavirus has affected preparations, movement of people and the guidelines in place restricting people from social gatherings and emphasizing social distance to avoid the spread of the virus.

This was in a communication from the Masaka Diocese which had been chosen to organize the first-ever double celebrations by the Uganda Episcopal Conference (UEC).

The Masaka Diocesan Communications Director, Rev Fr. Ronald Mayanja says they chose to cancel the celebrations because of the coronavirus. He says at first they thought the lockdown would be lifted early and continue with preparations, but it was not possible.

Masaka diocese had already raised over Shs300 million in preparation for the feast which required a total of Shs950 million. Although the feast has been postponed, we have not dissolved the standing organizing communities,” Mayanja said.
