Boston remembers Uganda martyrs, honors St. Peter

.- This past weekend was one of celebration, remembrance and tradition in the Archdiocese of Boston. Archbishop Sean O’Malley led a vibrant celebration to commemorate the Feast Day of the Uganda Martyrs at Sacred Heart Church. The former Vice President of Uganda Speciosa Kazibwe attended the mass as well, reported the Daily News.

In his homily, the archbishop remarked on the ecumenism that the martyrs had lived and exemplified.“The death of the Uganda martyrs holds special meaning. They shared their martyrdom with Christians from many different churches,” he told the hundreds of people present. “All of us must be inspired by that desire for unity among all of Christ's followers."

He also wrapped up the annual three-day St. Peter's Fiesta in Gloucester June 26 by giving the traditional blessing of the community’s fishing fleet. He officiated from the bow of Miss Trish Two, praying for the saftey of the fishermen and their boats.

The Fiesta honors St. Peter, the patron of fishermen. It begins with a procession carrying the statue of St. Peter from the St. Peter's Club on Gloucester's waterfront to St. Peter's Square.
