Masaka Diocese has today welcomed its new Bishop Serverus Jjumba. Jjumba who has been serving as the vicar general of the diocese has replaced Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa whose tenure came to end in April this year. The newly consecrated Bishop has pledged to spread and strengthen the Catholic faith within the diocese.

Rt.Rev Kaggwa handed his successor a pastoral staff, miter and ecclesiastical ring as symbols of authority.

Minutes to the consecration ceremony, Fr Edward Ssekabanja, the diocesan chancellor read an official document from Rome confirming that Msgr Jjumba was duly appointed by Pope Francis.

On behalf of Buganda Kingdom, Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga welcomed the new Bishop and urged him to cause positive development to the people of God within the region of Buddu. He said there is need to uplift the standards of people of Masaka through encouraging them to engage in coffee farming and animal raring so as to overcome the problem of poverty and lack of food for domestic use.

Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa asked Bishop Jjumba to be strong, courageous and serve the flock of Christ with humility and justice. It is the power of the Cross that can crush the power of devil in all aspects.

 

Vice President Edward Ssekandi, who represented President Museveni, commended Rt Rev. Kaggwa for his dedicated service to the diocese spanning two decades.
