Who are the Uganda Martyrs

The Uganda Martyrs Catholic Community (UMCC) is a Not-for-profit voluntary organisation based in UK.

Established in 1989, UMCC advocates for non-violence among the youth and among its own members are speakers and advocates who are in the Metropolitan Police.

The Uganda Martyrs Catholic Community (UMCC); originally known as Uganda Martyrs Association (UMA) – has its roots from a choir which had been formed to officiate at various Ugandan functions in the United Kingdom.

The choir was started mainly, by members originating from Jjinja Karoli Parish in Uganda and these were: Mr. Joseph Kateegaya Nsubuga (Music Director), Mr. Emmanuel Sseguya Kibuuka, Mr. John Birozo Kibuuka, Mr. Ceasar Saaka Kibuuka, Mrs Juliet Mutyaba, Mrs Regina Fletcher, Ms Julie Ssozi, Ms. Regina Kiwanuka and Mr. Lawrence Ntale (organist).

It was Mr. Emmanuel Sseguya who first proposed that, as choir bearing the same name, it would be a good idea to celebrate the feast of the Uganda Martyrs in a special way. The very first celebration took place on 3rd June, 1989 where Mr. Sseguya asked his parish priest to celebrate Mass for them. The Ugandan choir led the singing during that Mass.

The Uganda Martyrs Catholic Community is governed by an Executive Committee and in accordance with UMCC constitution. During summer, every year, a new Executive is voted in, just after the previous one has been dissolved at an Annual General Meeting. To be voted into a position on the Executive, a member bust be recorded in the UMCC Treasurer’s records as being fully paid up member of UMCC before the election. Subsequently, the Executive has to be paid up, within a specified time, once they assume power.

All UMCC positions on the Executive Committee are voluntary. There are other positions too, and they are also of a voluntary nature. For further details on the Executive committee and more please contact the UMCC Secretary via email on
