Ugandan bishops warn against false ordinations

November 29, 2016

The Uganda Episcopal Conference has warned the faithful that recent priestly “ordinations” of two men by two self-proclaimed bishops were invalid and illicit.

In addition, the three priests who joined in the October 29 ceremony in Mubende were automatically excommunicated, Archbishop John Baptist Odama, the president of the bishops’ conference, announced in a public statement.

The prelate prayed that the priests “come to the realization of their mistakes, repent, and stop misleading themselves as well as misleading the people of God.”
