Archbishop Sentamu is in the country to attend the centenary celebrations of Muhabura Diocese which are going to take place on Saturday. Both Archbishop Sentamu and Luke Orombi are to lay a foundation stone for Mabugo Church where the first missionary church was born in 1912.
Talking about the economic hardships in the country, Archbishop Sentamu said, “I know you’re struggling economically as there isn’t enough money. It’s the same in the UK. Jesus who conquered death and evil will help us get through these difficult times,” he told the congregation at St. Andrew’s Seseme Cathedral, Kisoro on the first day of his visit.
During his speech, Sentamu said he was happy to be back at Muhabura Diocese which was significant in his life. Muhabura Diocese was formerly part of that of Kigezi, where at the age of 17 he was involved in an evangelistic mission with the late Bishop Festo Kivengere.
Dr. Sentamu is one of the candidates who is in line to succeed the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.
