As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding took place on 19 May 2018 in Windsor, England, 17 other couples in Uganda exchanged their vows in wedding ceremony organised at St.Francis Chapel Makerere.
The colorful ceremony was an initiative spearheaded by the Mothers and Fathers Union – and the Marrieds’ fellowship attached to this particular ministry.
The celebration included a groom serving with the nation security forces.
It was a big success, the Church said in a statement, adding that they received support from commercial brands including Coca cola, Radiant among others.
Believers commended St.Francis Chapel Makerere for the initiative, with one Christian, Nicholas Twesigye saying it is always a wonderful thing for couples to commit.
The Church was built in 1942 is a centre of Christian Spiritual growth and transformation located at the heart of Makerere University, Kampala.
The first service at the chapel took place on 6 December 1942 and since then the chapel has continued to face progressively increasing numbers of students and members of staff of the University, as well as individuals from the surrounding communities who worship in it.
As a result in 1963, the chapel was expanded to cater for the 450 worshipers at the time. By the year 2000, there were already 5 established services every Sunday, with some services requiring the use of provisional seats outside the Chapel.
