Cornelious’s visit to Uganda

It was a great joy to our community and the Diocese to receive our dear brother Cornelious from America who returned back home for his third visit to Uganda this February, 2024. His first visit to Uganda was with the President of  St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in 2017 and presided at Fr. Simon’s Church wedding and Cornelious was his best man “koumparos” in Greek. His second visit was with the OCMC seminarians team to Uganda for mission work in 2018. Cornelious during this visit stayed with Fr. Simon in his house for 3 weeks and was blessings to Fr. Simon’s family, Church, communities both in Acholi and Lango sub region. He brought with him Church Liturgical Books (Menaion, Octoechos and Pentecostarion) and others for the Church. He reconnected, interacted and was teaching the people how to use these books, chanting etc. We thank him and pray to God for him.
