The Orthodox Anglican Church (OAC) in Uganda has ordained one priest and nineteen deacons as part of the move to expand its roots in the country.  

The ordination took place at the OAC headquarters in Gayaza village in Kasaali town council- Kyotera district on Sunday. 

The ordained priest and deacons completed a one-year course at the OAC Theological College in the same village. 

Bishop Cornelius Kateregga Bakubanja, the leader of the OAC in Uganda cautioned the group against sexual abuse, which is eating away the Church of Christ. 

He says that all sorts of evil that are in the church and condoned by the church leaders have provoked God’s anger.     

He attributed the vice to greed for money, lack of self-dignity and corruption of the mind and soul among church leaders.

Cue out:……mulangirire Christo.”//    

According to Rev. Fr. Balitazali Mugabi, the chief priest of OAC in Gayaza, the controversies in the church started generations before the coming of Christ and

prevailed during the missionaries’ visit across the world. 

He appealed to the new deacons and priest to promote love and unity and stay spiritually strong in order to serve Christ diligently.  

//Cue in: “Abadyankoni baffe…….      

Cue out:…………….abantu bona.”// 

The deacons pledged to fight immoral acts in the church that may compromise their

service.

Julius Walugaba, one of the deacons, said that they are to lead by example as required by God, saying this is the only way the church can regain trust from the

public. 

Bishop James Parker Dees founded the OAC in 1963 after breaking away from the Episcopal Church following allegations of immorality and doctrinal errors. 

In Uganda, the church started in 2017.
