22 Ugandan converts were martyred in the persecutions of King Mwanga.

They are:
  • James Buzabaliao
  • John Maria Muzeyi
  • Joseph Mukasa
  • Kizito
  • Lukka Baanabakintu
  • Matiya Mulumba
  • Mbaga Tuzinde
  • Mugagga
  • Mukasa Kiriwawanvu
  • Nowa Mawaggali
  • Ponsiano Ngondwe

  • O God, by whose providence the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church: Grant that we who remember before you the blessed martyrs of Uganda, may, like them, be steadfast in our faith in Jesus Christ, to whom they gave obedience, even unto death, and by their sacrifice brought forth a plentiful harvest; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
