THE HISTORY OF FAMILY MINISTRY APOSTOLATE

IN KABALE DIOCESE

Family Ministry Apostolate gained its autonomous status in 2008 to effect the resolutions of the 8th Kabale Diocesan Pastoral Council which was held in August 2007.

  • Emphasizing that a family being a basic unit of the church and society, the members resolved that evangelizing the family is the priority of all pastoral activities in the Diocese.
  • That recognizing the role that women play in the evangelization, the family should be catechized in order to rediscover the dignity of a woman in the church and society.

Currently, the family ministry office has a coordinator and one trained counselor that runs the day to day operations of the office. The office has been engaged in counseling services including pre - marital counseling, refresher courses and seminars for couples and individuals as a way of renewing their commitment. In furtherance of the above, and in an effort to strengthen the office, the diocese declared Holy Family Fund where all Diocesan Collections are forwarded to the office to support activities and daily running of the office.
