Kolping member ordained to the priesthood

On July 22, 2017, the Catholic Church of Uganda officially celebrated her 100th anniversary.  On that day, priests and deacons were ordained throughout the country.  With great joy Dancille Mujawamariya, Managing Director of Kolping Rwanda, reports that there is also a Kolping member among the newly ordained priests. 

While two priests and one nun are already Kolping members – independent of the praesides - Joseph Nshimiyiana is the first seminarian, who was active in Kolping already before his ordination.  It is a good sign that Kolping Rwanda has deepened the roots in the Church and in the society of this East-African country.
