Robbers vandalized Ugandan Junior Seminary, Desecrated the Tabernacle

His Most Rev. Paul Ssemogerere of the Archdiocese of Kampala in Uganda, through the Office of the Chancellor, is asking for prayers for “healing, repentance and restitution of God’s glory” after robbers attacked Nswanjere Junior Seminary on March 20.



Police reported that the robbers entered the seminary at 3:00am in the morning by cutting the barbed wire fences. The assailants stole a TV set, mobile phones, laptop and some cash. There were two priests who were also injured in the incident namely Fr. Emmanuel Mukukule and Fr. Kyeyune Godfrey while Rev. Fr. John Bosco Kigundu and Bro. John Bosco Mwasa were robbed.


The Archdiocese mentioned that “the robbers vandalized the Chapel, stole some property.” With this, the Archdiocese launched a triduum, a 3-day prayer as an Act of Reparation, from March 21 to March 23.



Nswansere Junior Seminary was established in 1964 and founded by Archbishop Joseph Kiwanuka to nurture vocations for the Archdiocese.

Amen.
