A highlight of this year for Saint John Vianney Theological Seminary and Redemptoris Mater Missionary Seminary is an ordinations to the transitional diaconate for seminarian Julius Lule.
For many years, Deacon Lule has been working to be a faithful disciple of the Lord and to configure his heart to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Good Shepherd and High Priest of the New Covenant.
In this task, he has been closely accompanied by his formators and the faculty and staff of our seminaries. Deacon Lule expressed his heartfelt thanks to all who participated in his life to get him to this moment.
We rejoice in the ordination of our brother who was ordained to the transitional diaconate by Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila on September 16, 2020. Deacon Lule is in formation to become a priest of the Diocese of Kasana-Luweero, Uganda
Due to the exceptional circumstances of COVID-19, the ceremony was not open to the public.
