HOIMA DIOCESE GETS MORE MINISTERS TO LOOK AFTER GOD’S FLOCK
It was on 7th July 2018 that God gave Hoima Catholic Diocese more laborers to look after his flock in the persons of fourteen newly ordained priests and ten deacons. The Ordination rites were carried out in a Pontifical Mass which was led by the Rt. Rev. Vincent Kirabo Amooti, the Bishop Ordinary of Hoima Diocese.
The newly ordained priests and their parishes of origin are: Rev. Fr. Alfred Abigaba, Murro Parish; Rev. Fr. Godfrey Alinaitwe, Buseesa Parish; Rev. Fr. Rogers Alituha, Bujuni Parish; Rev. Fr. Charles Isingoma, Nyamigisa Parish; Rev. Fr. Joseph Kato, Buseesa Parish; Rev. Fr. Basil Kisakyamaria and Rev. Fr. Richard Tumusiime, Kasambya Parish; Rev. Fr. Leopold Kobusheshe, Bwikara Parish; Rev. Fr. John Mary Mbabazi, Bugambe Parish; Rev. Fr. John Mary Mugabi, Kahunde Parish; Rev. Fr. Denis Mukonyezi, Nyamigisa Parish; Rev. Fr. John Bosco Musinguzi, Muhorro Parish; Rev. Fr. Donozio Ruhangaliyo, Kakindo Parish; and Rev. Fr. Achiles Bisoborwa (Religious), Kabwoya Parish.
The seminarians who were elevated to the order of diaconate are: Rev. Panuel Adegitho, Rev. Erasmus Kalisa, and Rev. Christopher Tusiime, Biiso Parish; Rev. Lawrence Ayesiga, Munteme Parish; Rev. Maritazali Ndyomugabe, Mugalike Parish; Rev. Robert Ssenyonga, Bukuumi Parish; Rev. Godfrey Sunday, Buseesa Parish; Rev. Francis Ssewanyana, and Rev. Emmanuel Turyasingura, Kagadi Parish; and Rev. Deogratias Tumwine, Bujuni Parish.
What made this year’s ordinations quite special and different from the recent past ordinations was the ordination of Rev. Fr. Achiles Bisoborwa a religious priest, belonging to the Congregation of the Camilians. Fr. Achiles is originally born from Sts. Peter and Paul, Kabwoya Parish, Hoima Diocese.
This happens to be the third time Bishop Kirabo officiates an ordination ceremony in his diocese since his consecration as Bishop Ordinary of Hoima three years back.
To the newly ordained deacons, we wish them success as they embark on their final year of seminary formations, and to the newly ordained priests, we wish them success and blessing in their priestly ministry.
