Kampala, 09 December, 2021 / 9:05 pm (ACI Africa).
The Bishop of Uganda’s Kasana-Luweero Diocese who has also been serving as the Apostolic Administrator of Kampala Archdiocese since April 2021 has been appointed the Local Ordinary of the Ugandan Archdiocese, which is headquartered in the capital city of the East African country.
The appointment of Bishop Paul Ssemogerere who has been at the helm of Kasana-Luweero Diocese since his Episcopal Ordination in June 2008 was made public by the Holy See Press Office Thursday, December 9.
The Archdiocese of Kampala became vacant following the death of Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga in April. The late Archbishop was found dead in his room the morning of April 3, hours after preaching during the ecumenical Way of the Cross on Good Friday.
Born in June 1956 in Kisubi in the Archdiocese of Kampala, Archbishop-elect Ssemogerere was ordained a Priest for the same Ecclesiastical See in June 1983.
As a Priest, the Ugandan-born Archbishop-elect served in various capacities, including Dean of Christ the King Deanery in Kampala Archdiocese, and Vicar General of the Ugandan Archdiocese.
