Vicar All Saints’ Cathedral, Kampala since February 2007. It is my pastoral duty to oversee and coordinate all weekly services at the cathedral including, weddings, baptisms, funerals, confirmation, memorial, thanksgivings, children, youth and Sunday services.
I serve with a team of six clergy and I am the priest in charge of Compassion, Healing and Counseling, Pre- marital Counselling, Music and the Worship Arts. I am also the Patron of Christian Women’s Fellowship. .
Over the last eight years I have initiated various ministries at All Saints’ that are close to my heart. The Faith In God’s Healing Touch (F.I.G.H.T.) AIDS Fellowship, the Fellowship of families dealing with Autism, as well as the Alcohol Recovery Programme.
I am a teacher by profession, a clergyperson (Anglican Priest) and counselor by calling and training and an AIDS and Gender activist by choice. Rev Dr. Solomon Nkesiga and I were married for twenty five years and together we have two sons Ignatius and Themba. The Lord also gave us two daughters to raise Edith Nagawa and Evelyn Namugumya.
I serve on several boards in the country including Mild- May Uganda, Rahab Ministries, an organization that rescues and rehabilitates girls from the street, Gendemi (Supporting the vulnerable girl child) and Wakisa Ministries Pregnancy Crisis Centre.
All the above reflect that I am deeply passionate about enabling hurting individuals and hurting community to be restored to their true value in Christ Jesus. I believe that loving, valuing and empowering relationships restore hurt individuals into resourceful, fruit bearing members of the community of faith.
Embrace the value God has placed on you and live and give life to the fullest!!!
I believe I have been a ground breaker in many things just like many women broke ground for me to become a minister. I pray, those rugged unclear paths we have tread, will spread out into broad roads for you to travel in your full calling in this life without fear or human hindrance.
