BLESSED SACRAMENT RETREAT CENTRE

Background:

Blessed Sacrament Retreat Centre is a fruit of the Holy Spirit that was born after the celebration of Golden Jubilee of Canonical erection of the Institute of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix -Ggogonya in 1998. Among the activities that preceded the Golden celebration was a popular retreat that was prepared by the sisters in which the main facilitator was the late Fr. Joseph Bill an Indian priest renown for evangelization and renewal missions. In this retreat, many people experienced both spiritual and physical healing. After the retreat, many people continuously flocked the premises of Ggogonya for adoration, praising, and thanksgiving; they continued to experience the mercy of God.

 During the year 2006, the General Council then led by Sr. Maria Lawrence Namata who was the Superior General, decided to officially recognize and accord special care for the overwhelming numbers who found Ggogonya as a fountain of God’s Mercy. Mother Lawrence sought permission from the archdiocese and the then Archbishop, the late Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga responded very positively by appointing a full-time chaplain in the names of Fr. Emmanuel Ssemambo to offer spiritual assistance to the people of God. The centre was officially opened on 11th May 2009.

That time it was named DIVINE MERCY PRAYER CENTRE which was later changed to BLESSED SACRAMENT RETREAT CENTRE GGOGONYA.

The centre has since then grown and it continues to expand.
