Lango and West Lango Dioceses will lead the main activities to commemorate the 46th anniversary of St. Janani Luwum on February 16th, 2023.
Kitgum diocese has been leading all religious services to remember St. Janani Luwum for the past 45 years.
Bishop Godfrey Loum, the Bishop of Northern Uganda said today that the decision to conduct the service in a rotational manner was arrived at in 2022, by a fellowship of Bishops in northern Uganda, comprising Kitgum diocese, northern Uganda, Lango, West Lango, Nebbi, Madi, and West Nile dioceses.
Bishop Loum who said the Bishops hold a rotational fellowship on a quarterly basis in all the dioceses and decided in early 2022 that the service in memory of St Janani Luwum be held in turns because at the time of his death, Northern Uganda was under one diocese, and it is only sensible that he is commemorated in unity. Bishop Loum speaking…..
Andrew Kilama, the vice chairperson organizing committee of the memorial of St Janani Luwum, reiterated that there have been discussions on why the service should only be led by the Diocese of Kitgum yet St. Janani Luwum led people beyond Uganda. END
