BY: Eyalama In Life, News On

The deceased Archbishop Dr Cyprian Kizito Lwanga will be laid to rest today “Thursday” in the historical Rubaga Cathedral church.

The requiem mass will start at 10:00 am and it will be presided over by the reigning Chairman of the Uganda Episcopal Conference, the Rt Rev Prof Joseph Antony Zziwa.

The Late Archbishop Lwanga will be the third prelate to be buried inside Rubaga Cathedral. The first prelate to be buried in there was Bishop Edouard Michaud, a Canadian Clergyman who was one of the priest missionaries known as White Fathers. He was the vicar Apostolic of Uganda from 1933 until he died in 1945.

Inside the same church are the remains of Dr Joseph Kiwanuka, the first native African to be ordained a Catholic bishop in modern times who died in 1966 five years after his appointment as Archbishop of Rubaga.

Dr Lwanga will be laid in the middle of the two of his ‘fore grandfathers’. He died in his sleep last week on Saturday at the age of 68 years old.
