"NOERTHERN UGANDA FAITHFUL PRAYED FOR THE LATE METROPOLITAN JONAH AND EXPRESS THEIR CONDOLENCES.
Our Beloved brothers & Sisters, faithful of the Holy Metropolis of Kampala, the clergy and faithful of Northern Region, Holy Diocese of Gulu & Eastern Uganda, wish to express our heart felt Condolences from here in Gulu, for the passing on of H.E. Metropolitan Jonah Lwanga. With tremendously heavy heart we received the sad news of his passing away.
In addition to being devout Father, his numerous contribution to the spread of the Orthodoxy in Uganda will be remembered.
We also had the blessing of having him as our Spiritual father for many years, when our region was still under the Metropolis of Kampala.
May God comfort you during this time of the immeasurable loss and with the blessing of our Bishop Silvester Kisitu, we are always with you in spirit.
'He fought the good fight, He finished the race', May his Memory Be Eternal +++
With love in Christ,
Rev.Fr. Emmanuel Oruk, Vicar North,
Rev.Fr.Francis Ongaya Dean Gulu,
Rev.Fr.David Okwel Dean Lira,
for the Clergy and Faithful of Northern Region."
