The year 2015 was a blessing to Fort Portal Diocese. We had five Deacons and three priests ordained.
On 4th July 2015, the Ordinary of the diocese ordained one deacon and two priests at Wekomiire parish. They are:
- Rev Fr. Bernard Kwebiiha, virika Parish
- Rev Fr, Robert Businge a born of Butiiti parish
- Deacon Thomas Kusemererwa a born or Butiiti parish.
On11th July, there was yet another ordination ceremony at Virika cathedral parish where one priest and four deacons were ordained. They are:
- Fr. George William Baguma
- Deacon Simon Peter Alituha
- Deacon Paul Mwirumubi
- Deacon Dominic Tumusiime
- Deacon Fredrick Douglas Waako
All the five hail from the cathedral pariah.
During the ordination ceremonies Bishop Robert K. Muhiirwa congratulated the ordinands and asked to always trust in the one who called them as they serve His people. He also called upon parents to always encourage and support their children whenever they feel called to the priesthood and religious life. He went on to point out that unfortunately there are some parents who think that once their children have passed well their exams, they should not join these vocations. This, he called erroneous thinking! He noted that God is the source of all that is good and he deserves the best!
