My journey to the priesthood was initially inspired by my upbringing at home, especially by my father’s prayer life. He was a catechist and used to gather us in the family to pray before eating and sleeping. As I got older, I grew to admire the missionary priests who were in charge of my parish called Hima, in particular Fr. Henry Valette. These inspirations at home and at my parish brought about a desire in me to live in a community with other like-minded men pursuing the faith, as priests who in community life are committed to praying for people.

I made an attempt to join a seminary but I was not able to succeed on my own. Since I thought my vocation to the priesthood had failed, I then decided to go to college and I was interested in accounting. But the Lord did not give up on me. Around that time I was introduced to the Capuchins who gave me a lot of encouragement in my dream of becoming a priest, so in 2015 I joined their Order as a novice.

About my community:
St. Anthony of Padua (Fort Portal)
In the Diocese of Fort Portal, CARITAS helps to sponsor Capuchin Franciscan seminarians during their priestly formation. The patron Saint for this community is St. Anthony of Padua, and we pray for his intercession so that these young men excel in their studies and also become holy priests, spreading the Gospel wherever they are assigned after ordination.
About my country:
Uganda
Known as the "Pearl of Africa," Uganda is located on the shores of Lake Victoria in the Great Lakes region of East Africa. Since emerging from decades of civil war and the devastation of AIDs, estimates indicate that 48% of Uganda's population is below the age of 15. Young children suffer disproportionately in the struggle to access healthcare, education, and clean water.
