This year’s Ordination Mass will be animated by St. Cyprian Town Parish Joint Choir.


With great Joy, Fr. Ssemambo welcomes these ordinandees with a biblical quotation from Mathew 9:37-38:  So He said to His disciples, “The harvest is large, but there are few workers to gather it in. Pray to the owner of the harvest that he will send out workers to gather in his harvest.”

Remember, on August 9, 2022, Hoima Diocese will marking 58 years of existence, with 50 Parishes comprising the diocese which started with only 7 in 1965.

Fr. Ssemambo wished the Lord’s servants who are yet to be ordained Peace, as they will be serving God with love and happiness.
