Jacinto Kibuuka, the reigning Bishop of Uganda’s Evangelical Orthodox Church (EOC), has ordained yet another group of priests.
At an occasion held at the Mamre International Prayer Centre in Kampala on Sunday, Vincent Olowo and Cyprian Anzo Draleke Kanuto were ordained.
Bishop Kibuuka, speaking at the event, exhorted the ordained priests to be trustworthy while also acting in a Godly manner.
He also requested them to assist families in raising their children to be responsible citizens in the future.
At the same event, Kibuuka spoke out against the government’s contentious coffee agreement with Uganda Vinci Coffee Company (UVCC), urging parliament to reject it.
“It is not wise to say (government) that what has been decided is definitive. People who are interested parties were never consulted. Listen to the people, who are God’s voice. “The accord should be rejected by Parliament,” Kibuuka stated.
Promise to serve
Following their ordination, the two priests vowed to serve God at all times and with all their hearts.
“I must thank God for the opportunity to become a priest.” When we were excommunicated from the other church, we were like Jonah, who was thrown into the sea, but God sent this church to swallow us up.
“We would have drowned if we had stayed in the sea,” Vincent Olwo stated.
Bishop Kibuuka and the Evangelical Orthodox Church were praised for welcoming them into their new home.
“Thank you for bringing this up to the Lord’s Alter. It is now time to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
