"The Church lost a great hierarch this past weekend, as Metropolitan Jonah of Kampala and All Uganda fell asleep in the Lord. Metropolitan Jonah's contributions to the Orthodox Church in Africa can't be overstated, and we have been blessed to work so closely with him, sharing the light and love of Christ with so many, both in Africa, and around the world. May his memory be eternal!
“His Eminence was a tremendous mentor to me and all of our missionaries in East Africa, helping us minister within the local context of Africa. He was one of the first of a new generation of local African Orthodox leaders, and will be sorely missed,” stated Father Martin."
