Uganda Tour guide Bernard Tenywa (right) leads children from the Canossa St. Joseph Lweza Kindergarten in a moment of prayer at the Uganda Martyrs’ Shrine, a Catholic church in Namugongo, a suburb of Uganda’s capital, Kampala. This faith-based tourism site, which is about 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) northeast of Kampala, is known for the killings of Ugandan Roman Catholic martyrs in 1885, after the king, Mwanga, decreed that they must denounce their faith or be burned alive.
