The museum, which is found in Cardinal Wamala’s ancestral home in Kamaggwa village in Kyotera district, will act as a reference center for his contribution to both the Catholic Church and country at large.
Bishop Serverus Jjumba of Masaka Diocese says the Museum is a collection of significant items and moments in the life of Cardinal Wamala, which will help priests and ordinary Christians to reflect on how to live purposeful lives filled with great contributions to the society.
The Retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese John Baptist Kaggwa led the Catholics in a mass in which they reflected on Lwanga’s lifestyle and high sense of affection to faith which he exhibited when he braved death at the expense of Mwanga’s orders to denounce his newly found Christianity faith.
The Right Reverend Damiano Giulio Gezzetti, the reigning Bishop of Moroto Diocese who led the requiem mass this afternoon, eulogized his predecessor as a hardworking man with a strong footprint in the Karamoja region, despite the tough times under which he served in the area.
The late Bishop Ssentongo who died at 83, at Nsambya Hospital in Kampala was ordained a priest in December 1963, and later appointed and consecrated Bishop in March 1989. After serving as Bishop of Moroto Diocese for 22 years and clocking the mandatory age of active service, he was eventually retired in 2014.
