The Catholic Diocese of Kasese has ordained four priests and promoted two seminarians to deacons.

The deacons who were ordained priests are Godwin Kibaba, Norbert Muhindo, Mariko Bwambale and John Baluku Isebayanda, while the seminarians who were ordained deacons are Modesto Bwambale ad Loti Maate.

They were presented to Rt. Rev. Francis Aquirinus Kibira, the Bishop of Kasese Diocese by their parents at a function held at Kasese Catholic Cathedral. Rt. Rev. Kibira told the newly ordained priests and deacons to be messengers, watchmen and stewards of the Lord and encouraged them to love and support their parents.

The Bishop asked the ordained clergymen to always seek the advice of the Church and that of their parents whenever they are faced with challenges in service.

//Cue in; “The shoulder can never…

Cue out…love your parents.”//

Kibira also used the function to ask the seminarians to desist from acts of hatred and bias against each other. The ordained clergymen applauded the bishop and all believers for their support and pledged to fully support the diocese and the pastoral work of the diocese.

//Cue in; “We thank you...

Cue out: …to get experience.”//

Yosefu Byamutima, the father of John Baluku who spoke on behalf of the parents, challenged parents to nurture their children so that they can grow spiritually to serve the Lord. The ordained were awarded certificates of completion and given appointment letters to their respective parishes.
