KASESE. The ordinations season of the Catholic Church started on Saturday with Kasese and Mbarara dioceses ordaining 13 priests and several deacons.
In Kasese Bishop Francis Aquirinus Kibira ordained Arthur Joseph Ssembaja Bwambale and Godfrey Sunday as priests during a colourful ceremony at Our Lady of Assumption Cathedral.
At the ceremonies attended by several dignitaries including Leader of Opposition in Parliament Winfred Kiiza, Bishop Kibira called on leaders to support education for all, especially the girl child, which will get all the societies out of poverty.
