We give God the glory for the St. Peter's Celebration which took place on Sunday 1st July at St.Philips Cathedral.
Many married men who attended the function marched from Gulu town to St. Philips Cathedral, about 4 Kilometres.
The Chairman of the Fathers' Union in the Diocese of Northern Uganda Mr. Owacgiwu Francis appealed to the married men to be responsible parents and have stable families. He said men these days are running away from their responsibilities and leaving women to struggle with life.
Bishop Johnson Gakumba who officiated in the function thanked the Fathers Union for coming up and challenged the married men to get those men who are not wedded to come to church.

9th Graduation held on Saturday 14th April 2018
We give Glory to God and everyone of you who have participated in one way or the other in supporting the students of Women Development Centre. On Saturday 9th April 2018 we held the 9th Graduation ceremony at the Centre. A total of 36 students turned up, rain interrupted the function and we ended up in the main hall. Bishop Johnson Gakumba who officiated in the function thanked the students for their success. The Bishop restated the importance of skilling even at University level. He asked the Graduates to trust in God and live a godly life. He informed the congregation about the new Vocational Institute due to start in September 2019. The Bishop said WDC has already produced many graduates and that some have even become tutors, he gave Joyce Ajok as example. The President of the Mothers Union said they opened this institution to cater for the most vulnerable students some of whom have not even gone beyond Primary Seven. She appreciated all those who have supported the graduates of WDC by giving them a start up kit.
In a special way, we at the Women Development Centre dearly thank in particular Elsebeth Hoggard for the support she has always been giving since they started working with the Women Development Centre, and in particular for this year.
The New Principal Ms. Adyero Dorothy appreciated the parents for their co-operation in supporting their children now graduates. She urged the graduates to also think of empowering other women in the future.
