The outgoing Bishop of Masaka Diocese Rt. Rev. John Baptist Kaggwa has decried the apparent decline in faith among the laity, acts of dishonesty, and the high numbers of Christians in cohabitation.
Bishop Kaggwa observes that the issues present a stern challenge to his successor Monsignor Serverus Jjumba, the bishop-elect of Masaka Diocese and advises him to devise means of attending to them and ensure unity within the congregation.
Bishop Kaggwa made the statement after Monsignor Serverus Jjumba; pleaded with the laity to support him accomplish tough tasks he faces in his new posting.
Bishop Kaggwa has also advised his successor to continue building on the foundation of his predecessors in whose footsteps he says was also walking into. Kaggwa is however highly optimistic that his successor will also afford the new responsibilities assigned to him, asking the congregation to afford him all the required support for the good of the Church.
Msgr. Jjumba was named the fifth Bishop of Masaka on Tuesday, April 16, replacing the Rt. Rev John Baptist Kaggwa who has served for 21 years and has promised to serve with the grace of God
