Uganda's Hoima cathedral re-opened

Scenes of joy and praise played out as hundreds of Christians who attended the rededication and reopening ceremony celebrated the completion of the project. The Anglican archbishop, Henry Luke Orombi, led the mass in which the church was rededicated to God before it was symbolically re-opened by fisheries minister Ruth Nankabirwa who represented President Yoweri Museveni.

Museveni and Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi were some of the individuals who were honoured in absentia with accolades and certificates in recognition of their outstanding contribution towards the renovation.

    TSM grads Wilson Turumanya served as Bishop of Bunyoro-Kitari and John Rucheyana as Dean of St Peters before his election as a bishop in Rwanda.

  2. Jeremy Bonner says:

    Given the present government’s less than stellar approach to its political opponents, I hope that the presence of a representative of President Museveni doesn’t herald an increased reluctance on the part of Archbishop Orombi to speak out in the political arena. The Ugandan Church has a noble history of speaking the truth to power.

    Uganada is between Uganda and Canada

    Bunyoro-Kityara is my former diocese. Bishop Nathan is a truly Godly man. Both he and ABP Orombi appreciate all of the good things the president has done for Uganda, but neither has been shy in criticizing where warranted.

    Bunyaro-Kitara. There’s no “y”. Must proof read before hitting “submit!”
