Christians in Kazo asked to construct befitting cathedral
The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, the Most Rt Rev Dr Stephen Kazimba Mugalu has challenged the people of Kazo district to first elevate the cathedral in order to have an organized diocese.
Kazimba was on Saturday speaking during his first pastoral visit to North Ankole Diocese since he was consecrated as the 9th Archbishop of the Church of Uganda. In response to the need for people of Kazo to have their own Diocese, Dr Kazimba challenged them to first beautify the existing cathedral.
Kazimba also revealed that the province banned the creation of new dioceses adding that they should focus on saving people’s lives and steer development as they wait for the ban to be lifted then they can resume asking for a Diocese.
He appreciated the leaders of North Ankole diocese for making a very good decision of starting the Kanoni Bible study College for equipping men and women with the word of God.
During his three-day visit to North Ankole Diocese, Dr Kazimba paid courtesy calls to Buremba Secondary School, North Ankole Technical institute in Buremba Archdeaconry, Buremba Town council, Kazo Archdeaconry and Kanoni Bible College all in Kazo district.
While at Buremba Archdeaconry, Rev John Kurumwine expressed his satisfaction with the Archbishop noting that his visit will improve on the developments of their church.
