One can get the Lord’s blessings without being touched by any preacher. All he has to do is to pray with faith and whole heartedly. Mt. Sion Prayer Centre has over the years since it’s inception attracted a large number of believers. Thousands of people flock the centre during mass and religious festivals. For instance the “SSangaalo” at the end of every month. Believers stay over night and even brave enough to stay in the cold at night. In a bid to reach out to a bigger congregation, Mt.Sion prayer centre and Msgr. Expendito Magembe have come out with a DVD documentary that contains prayer activities at the centre and a powerful anointing prayer by Msgr Expendito Magembe.

To the above objectives, the focus is put on teaching and training the paths of Holiness works of the charity, reconciliation with God and living in the spirit of God. The masses at mt.sion prayer centre have increased tremendously since it’s inception in 1992 because of the miraculous happenings that take place there under the guidance of Msgr. Magembe Expedito. We don’t broadcast our sessions on any form of mass media and neither do we own a television or radio station, but it’s people’s testimonies about how their lives have been changed, cure from advanced diseases, financial breakthroughs, works of the devil like Demonic attacks, mental illness and many more challenges that have attracted more believers. Our teachings at Mount Sion are based on the catholic foundation but all people from various religious socializations are free to come, witness and receive the power of the Holy Spirit.
