The catholic, Anglican and Orthodox churches are expected to hold this year’s way of the cross together.

In the past, the three religious denominations held the way of the cross separately following misunderstanding caused by school foundation body wrangles.

In a press conference yesterday, the Bishop of Lira diocese Rev. Sanctus Lino Wanok said that through the Lango Religious Forum unity between the religious denominations was restored and they expect to hold the way of the cross together.

Wanok said the Orthodox Church has already confirmed uniting with the Catholic Church during prayers to hold the way of the cross.

He said their poor relationship with Anglicans stemmed from foundation body wrangles which saw the Anglican dragging Catholic Church to court.

Effort to confirm if the Anglican church will hold the way of the cross together with the Catholic and Orthodox faith failed by press time.

Bishop Wanok also asked Christians to use this lent season to preach the gospel of salvation to homosexuals, drug abusers, thieves and other criminals.

Bishop Wanok also asked parents to send their children to God-fearing schools to instill good morals among them.
