Celebrating the Inauguration of Uganda Branch Temple         ウガンダ支部精舎落慶式 

August 7, 2011 was the most memorable day for all the HS members in Uganda, as it was the Grand Opening day of the first Happy Science Temple ever built in Africa. Sky was clear without a cloud. Two flags were run up in the front yard of Temple: One is the national flag of Uganda and the other is that of Happy Science!

Ringing of the tiny bell sounded in the silent prayer hall packed with people when Rev. Tomo waved the stick of Kerykeion to bless the audience with light of El Cantare. 中川支部長がケリューケイオンの杖を振ると小さな鈴の音が、主エル・カンターレの祝福の光とともに静まり返った礼拝室に響き渡りました。
