The Bishop Emeritus of the Catholic Diocese of Nebbi in Uganda who was laid to rest on Wednesday, August 17 is being remembered for his love for nature and evangelization through the protection of the environment.
In his tribute to Bishop Martin Luluga at his Funeral Mass, Bishop Raphael p’Mony Wokorach of the Diocese of Nebbi said the late Catholic Church leader had implemented a variety of projects to protect the environment, starting from his own residence.
“Bishop Luluga loved nature. All the trees here in this residence are Martin’s work. We thank you Bishop Martin Luluga for going ahead of us in promoting green evangelization,” Bishop Wokorach said about the Catholic Church leader who started his Episcopal Ministry in January 1987 as Auxiliary Bishop of Uganda’s Gulu Archdiocese.
He added, “Bishop Martin Luluga was a friend of the Franciscans. He invited them in this Diocese and started with them a program to promote the spirituality of the environment and farming. This has been a remarkable gift to the Diocese.”
Bishop Luluga who died July 30 aged 89 was born on 1 March 1933 at Lodonga Parish in the present Yumbe District under the Catholic Diocese of Arua in Uganda.
