Uganda: Bundibugyo Christians Insist On Own Diocese

From Uganda-

Renegade Anglican Christians of Bundibugyo District have resolved to create more archdeaconries and parish headquarters in a bid to meet the standards of a new diocese.

Last week, the council convened a meeting at Bumadu Archdeaconry chaired by canon Wilson Kiiza to come up with a roadmap on how to apply for the proposed West Ruwenzori Diocese.

The Christians early this month made a proposal to split from Ruwenzori Diocese based in Fort Portal Municipality.

However, they faced resistance from the church leadership which argued that a new diocese cannot be created using rebellion.

The leaders advised the Christians on the procedures of having their own diocese, which include having a cathedral, among other physical and human resources.
