ANGLICAN leaders in Uganda, who took part in services with Pope Paul during his visit, have been criticised for their ecumenical activities.
At the August meeting of the Church of Uganda (Anglican) its leaders were attacked for praying with the Pope at both the Anglican shrine and the Catholic shrine honouring the Uganda martyrs.
An Anglican lay leader, Y. Mondo, said it appeared to most Christians that the Church of Uganda was now in danger of accepting the rule of the Pope and the doctrine of the Catholic Church and departing from the principles of the Anglican Church.
`SHOWING RESPECT' The Anglican Archbishop Sabiti of Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi explained that the Anglican leaders had no intention of departing from the principles of the Anglican Church.
Archbishop Sabiti said he did not believe that welcoming the Pope as they did meant that the Church of Uganda as a whole had accepted the principles of the Catholic Church.
