During the years 1982-1986, our beloved country Uganda was marred by wars. Many people lost their lives and property and some thought that God had forgotten Uganda. But despite all this, many Christians prayed to our Lady Queen of Peace to restore peace in our country.
Among them who prayed to mother mary was Father John De Bernard (Veronica Missionary), the then parish priest of Lweza. He pledged thet if peace was to be restored in Uganda, he would set up a shrine and dedicate it to Mother Mary.
After the Civil war, Fr John built Kiwamirembe Shrine on top of the Hill, 14Km along Kampala Entebbe road and named it “Our Lady, Queen of Peace Shrine”.
It was opened by His Eminence Emmanuel Cardinal Wamala Nsubuga (R.I.P) on 26 th May 1989.
