NWOYA PARISH ON FIRE



NWOYA  PARISH  ON  FIRE

The Parish Priest of Nwoya Parish, Rev. Nyeko Simon Peter, Tuesday 17th Jan 2017 lost items worth millions of shillings. Rev. Nyeko told us that the fire was started by an old woman. Among the items lost in the inferno were:  2 ½ Bags of Beans, about 400 kilograms of onions, all his documents, Vestments (7 clerical shirts, 3 cassocks, 1 surplice, 6 trousers, 4 stoles) 1 cupboard, Iron box, 3 New Bibles, 4 Big saucepans, 2 bicycles, 2 wheelbarrows, 4 Office chairs, 2 tables, 4 plastic chairs, 5 Jericans, 2 Basins and many other small items. The wife who was away had no time to pick any of her items and those of her 9 children.
Women who came to comfort Rev. Nyeko Simon Peter
A total of 10 huts got burnt, 5 belonging to the Reverend’s family, one hut of an old woman and 4 built by parents for the teachers of Nwoya Primary School.
The Diocesan Secretary Rev. Lumumba Patrick who visited the scene was shocked by what he saw.  Rev.Lumumba appealed to the Christians to support the Reverend to recover from the incident.  He was pleased with the women who turned up to see what had happened and said “even during the time of Jesus women were with him during difficult moments”. Rev. Lumumba took 25 kilograms of Phosho and some kilograms of beans and used clothes as emergency contribution from the Diocese.
Bishop Johnson said “It is high time the Christians start building decent houses for the pastors instead of grass thatched”
Nwoya is one of the many parishes in the Diocese of Northern Uganda where the clergy residences are still grass thatched. By the time of compiling this report the Reverend Nyeko and his family were still camped in the Church building. Rev. Neyko Simon Peter can be reached on his mobile number 0787 713 673
