Mbarara, 22 June, 2020 / 10:13 pm (ACI Africa).
At his installation as the new Local Ordinary of Uganda’s Mbarara Archdiocese Saturday, June 20, Archbishop Lambert Beinomugisha encouraged the people of God that will be under his care to work toward developing the Church at the grassroots through a spirit of generosity.
“Let us put our spiritual, human and temporal resources together, so that as to give a considerable contribution to the growth of our local church,” Archbishop Beinomugisha said on the occasion of his installation at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Mbarara.
He also encouraged the harnessing of “knowledge and skills, professionals and non-professionals, religious and secular from all walks of life in your different capacities so that we can sit down and together hatch out a plan of action and lay down pastoral strategies on how to minister in this Archdiocese.”
The 58-year-old Prelate appealed for togetherness “as a faith community” and “as members of one body of Christ so that we can advance the preaching of the good news for the growth of the church and the greater glory of God.”
“For you I am a Bishop, with you I am a Christian. Where I am terrified by what I am for you, I am given comfort by what I am with you,” he said.
