Claretians in Uganda
Our Apostolic priorities are
1.to inculcate in our life and missions as
Claretians ,the vision and sensibilities the
African church.
2.To help and motivate the people of our
missions to experience God’s love and to
consolidate all our ministries for the integral
development of the communities among
whom we serve.
We try to attain
this goal by exercising effective
Pastoral care of the people and by being
partners in the integral development of
our village communities.
