The theme was ‘The responsibility of a wife and husband to their family, work and church in relation to Romans 12-1-2 and John 15;16’.which reminded the couples about their responsibilities of living a positive life.

 The meeting focused at dedicating the couples to renewing their marriage vows with some stretching as far as 50 years of descent and humble marriage irrespective of the many problems along their journeys in marriage.

 The participants thanked Bishop Banja as event host alongside the president of the mother Union Central region and Namirembe diocese respectively Biingi Roseline Kawiso for granting them the opportunity to renew their marriage vows as well as learn new methods of avoiding conflict among their marriage relationships.
