The Christian Community of Gulu Archdiocese together with the faithful from others dioceses in Uganda and neithbouring countries colourfully celebrated 100 years of Paimol on 20th October 2018.
This should enter the record of the Little Sisters of Mary Immaculate for the consumption of our friends, benefactors and relatives and more so to honour what our Founder Bishop Angelo Negri has contributed in the life of the Blessed Martyrs of Piamol Daudi Okello and Jildo Irwa.
They originated from the diocese of Gulu, the current Gulu Archdiocese. a great honour and encouragement for the catechists in Uganda of which are some of our Sisters.
When Bishop Angelo Negri came-in, first as a Pastor then as the Bishop of Equatoria Vicariate with his seat in Gulu. He wrote a book about the two Catechists. Daud Okello and Jildo Irwa titled" The Tragedy of the Paimol Catechists". This irked the Catholic Church in Uganda to start to study the lives of these Catechist and the tragic death they underwent when evangelising he people of God in the area of Paiomol. Where they are buried is specifically named "Wi Polo" meaning "In Heaven" which sprinted-up when they were teaching the prayer of our Lord "OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN" to the prayer to the catechumens.
The Little Sisters went in great number with all the Formees; Novices, Postulants and Aspirants to honour the Centenary of the martyrdom of these Martyrs and to pray for these Blessed Martyrs to intercede for the successful process of the Beatification of their Founder Bishop Angelo Negri Servant of God.
