Kabale diocese ordains 6 Priests,

April 10, 2021

On the 10th April 2021, St Mary’s Cathedral Rushoroza was a beehive of activities. Priests, nuns and lay people pacing the cathedral compound up and down, right, left and centre; many people with official tags trying to be busy by holding the order of Mass while some holding meetings in small groups. And, a policeman trying to direct drivers where they could park their vehicles.

The cathedral was preparing itself for the ordination of six priests, seven Deacons and ten seminarians being installed into Lector and Acolyte ministries. The Deacon to receive the sacrament of Holy orders was a Comboni Missionary, Dn. Vicent Turinawe. Although we had been warned the previous evening that mass would be an invite-only, we were determined to attend with or without invitation cards. And true to our word, we attended mass, though everyone who came to Church was given a number to get into the Church on condition that they were wearing a face mask. During his homily, the Bishop of Kabale Diocese, Callist Rubaramira told the newly ordained priests that prayer was the biggest weapon for any priest. He advised the newly ordained to be ready to face any situation and to be ready to look for the lost sheep. The bishop also asked the newly ordained priests to love the people they were going to live with and serve, observing that a day without love is the most wasted day in the life of a priest. Among the ordained priests were; Augustine Tumushime, Placid Mugumya, Achilles Tumukurate, Deagratias Tubineruhanga, Vicent Turinawe- MCCJ and Deaogratius Mwebembezi. And the Deacons were Zaverio Tindimweba, Julius Ankunda, Deus Niwagaba, Monday Brian, Paul Atuyambe, Nicodemus Mubangizi and Jeremias Nsabimana.

The following day, the different people would travel to different Parishes to join the newly ordained priests for their thanksgiving masses all over Kabale and Kisoro. Our team, comprising of the Comboni missionaries travelled into the hills of Kigezi to Maziba Parish to attend Fr Vicent Turinawe’s thanksgiving mass. At Maziba Parish, there was a group of women 200 meters away from the venue whom I later came to know were the Holy family. These had a mock band; they were beating drums, while blowing plastic bottles mimicking the trumpet walking to go and pick the main celebrant, the newly ordained, Fr Vicent.

While in the tent, a group of young girls was entertaining the congregation with Kinyarwanda dances as they waited for mass to begin. At 11.30am, the young girls went into a procession as the lead dancers all the way to the venue where mass was to take place. Fr Vicent begun mass assisted by Fr Paulino Mondo. During Mass, the newly ordained priest baptised six children. During his homily, Fr Paulino told the people of Maziba Parish that they were blessed by God to have Vicent as a priest. He added that many good things were coming to them through Vicent, although they would not be material things, but spiritual. He asked the people in Maziba to pray for the newly ordained priest. He also requested and encouraged many parents to send their children to seminary for vocations.

At the same function, the Comboni Missionaries Provincial Superior, Fr Achilles Kiwanuka Kasozi noting that a child is a responsibility of the whole village, was grateful to the people of Maziba Parish for bringing up Fr Vicent in the right path. The Provincial also told the people of Maziba parish that Fr Vicent had become a priest but still needed their support through prayers and material support. Fr Achilles said Fr Vicent was a missionary who was going to work far away from home and requested them to support his mission. He added that in the past, missionaries used to bring everything but today, many missionaries are home children who need support. He informed them that Fr Vicent would be working in Moroto diocese and also requested them to pray for him.
