.- Cardinal Renato Martino, President of the Pontifical Council “Justice and Peace,” will travel to Uganda from May 31 to June 4 to visit, among other places, the cities of Gulu, Kalongo and Kitgum, where armed conflicts still persist.

The Cardinal will meet the authorities, “Justice and Peace” organizations, and representatives of religious and lay associations involved in social work, and he will visit refugee camps and hospitals for victims of the war which has lasted for 18 years.

On June 3, he is scheduled to preside at a Eucharistic celebration in Namugongo in honor of Ugandan martyrs, on the feast day of St. Charles Lwanga and his 21 companions, canonized by Paul VI in 1964.
