Married couples in Kabale diocese have been urged to find time for their family if they want development in their homes and the children to grow up with good Christian values.

This call was made by Rev. Fr. John Mary Vianney Byaruhanga on Sunday at Christ the King Church in Kabale town during the celebrations of the Holy Family Sunday attended by 350 married couples during the third mass service.

He said that it is not enough for married couples just to renew their marriage vows in church on the day of Holy Family but the married couples must resolve always to find time for their children so as to teach them prayers, catechism, the mysteries of the rosary and to go through the Bible reading together so that they may grow up as true Catholic Christians who are well versed in the glory of their Faith.

Fr Byaruhanga said that even women should have time for their husbands so that they wash and iron clothes for them. He also called upon the husbands to make time to plan the financial future of their homes with their wives. He said this will strengthen their marriage bond and banish suspicion that one of them is exploiting the other. 

The Holy Family Lay Apostolate Movement Christ the King Parish had a come together party at the Parish Hall where children and friends were invited to be happy with the married couples of Christ the King Parish.
