Welcome to Uganda Martyrs Catholic Community (UMCC) Website.
This community meets once a month to Celebrate Holy Mass in Holloway. These days are known as our community days.
In Faith We Grow is our moto. The 22 Uganda Martyrs form the corner stone of our community’s foundation.
Holy Mass is well attended and is the main activity. The social get-together, is aimed at strengthening the UMCC bond. UMCC aims to promote the “home-away-from-home” concept. Guest speakers from different walks of life deliver presentations aimed to inform/educate members on various social aspects. This has been well received by the The 22 Uganda Martyrs.
The community that makes up the Uganda Martyrs Catholic Community was founded around 1993. Since then the Community has grown in numbers and engaged in Catholic functions in the United Kingdom.
The Mission of the Community is to offer Ugandan Catholics living in the UK and the Republic of Ireland an opportunity to pray together in our indigenous languages, to socialise and help each other in finding solutions to problems.
The Community is also running a non-violent campaign among youth.
O God, by whose providence the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church: Grant that we who remember before thee the blessed martyrs of Uganda, may, like them, be steadfast in our faith in Jesus Christ, to whom they gave obedience even unto death, and by their sacrifice brought forth a plentiful harvest; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end, Amen.
