Historical Background:

Queen of peace is the rest house for the elderly and sick Sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya. This house was officially opened in 2007 with its first superior as Sr. M. Jane Rose Nakimwero and many other elderly and sick sisters 

Location:

Queen of peace is situated next to the chaplaincy of the Sisters of Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya. It is in the same locality with the Mother-house, a distance of about 200 meters form each other.

Accommodation Facilities:

Queen of peace community has a guest wing which offers accommodation to members of the Public especially those who may be coming or going to Entebbe International Airport. It is also very conducive for retreats for religious both men and women who would wish to have 8-days retreat.

 Current Situation:

The house is presently having twenty nine (29) sisters among whom nineteen are elderly and sick and the rest are the supporting staff. This house also has four ladies who help with other casual duties like attending to the compound, laundry, gardening and cooking among others. Sr. Theopista Nalwanga is the current Hose superior with Sr. Bernadette Nalubowa as the in-charge for health issues in the community. 

Majority of the elderly sisters in Queen of Peace are above 80 years however those who are not bed ridden are very active in small duties where they give a hand for instance in handwork, cleaning and tidying up the place. They too spent good time with the Lord praying for the whole Institute and the whole world which is their major assigned job at this stage.

The community rears some animals like Pigs and poultry which are for home consumption though at times they sell them to raise some income to pay off casual laborers.

 Future Plan:

  • Given Funds the community wishes to expand the piggery and poultry  to increase on production
  • They also rare mushrooms. However the space is limited – there is need for expansion if availed with funds
