St. Leo’s College Kyegobe – Chaplaincy
St. Leo’s Catholic community is within Fort Portal Diocese, Western Uganda. It comprises of students and staff members of St. Leo’s College Kyegobe, pupils of St. Jude Primary School and some other Christians from the neighbouring villages of Katumba, Katentebere, Gweri, Mwihani, Harubaho among others.
Currently the community is served by one diocesan priest – Father Guma Innocent, a permanent and resident chaplain and teacher, Brother Charles Agaba a brother of St. Joseph the worker, also working as Bursar to St. Leo’s College.
St. Leo’s College Catholic Community/ Chaplaincy was opened to address the spiritual needs of the catholic population and to some extent the needs of the entire students’ and staffs’ body. The vibrant community has most of its members as students and pupils.
The priests and religious serving this community undertake the following major spiritual assignments; mentoring the youth, children and students, preparing pupils and students to receive sacraments, uniting the staff members to enhance a greater co-operation and team work, administering sacraments, praying with the community members and giving general spiritual guidance.
- The work in St. Leo’s College Chapel is recognized though the following movements; – The choir which is the most outstanding achievement we have been blessed with Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
- Legion of Mary with Mr. Rwabwera Francis – the longest serving patron in the community and very supportive with the most active spiritual club.
- YCS with Mr. Nsaba Stanslaus as patron a good willed and supportive patron in our community.
I cannot forget to thank madam Kabasinguzi Mildred for the work of advising students and Mr. Ewama Lucky for training our choir plus other staff members for the support.
We are introducing new movements like Pioneer and Focolare with great hope that they will help our pupils and students to enhance their spirituality.
In conclusion, I cannot forget to thank the Catholic Community of St. Jude Primary School Kyegobe especially the Director, Head teacher and staff for the maximum co-operation rendered to St. Leo’s College Community.
I am always proud to serve this community besides being an Old Boy of the college (2003-2004).
Brethren I wish you God’s blessings.
