Today, all roads lead to St. Paul’s National Major Seminary, Kinyamasika, for the celebration of the seminary’s 25th anniversary. According to Fr Dr Lazarus Luyinda, the rector of the seminary, the celebrations will be graced by all the Catholic bishops of Uganda. Friends and benefactors of the seminary from Uganda and abroad will also grace the event.

“It is right and just that we give thanks to God for the gift of St Paul’s National Major Seminary, Kinyamasika, which has moulded so many priests since its inception 25 years ago. The enormous impact of the seminary is clearly visible through the productive activities of its alumni, including those who did not make it to priesthood.

I invite all people of goodwill to come and celebrate with us,” said Luyinda. The celebrations will start with a thanksgiving mass at 10:00am. Located in Fort Portal, Kabarole district, St Paul’s National Major Seminary, Kinyamasika, was started by the Catholic bishops of Uganda in 1992 to ease the congestion at St Mary’s National Major Seminary, Ggaba, which was the only National Major Seminary offering Theology at the time.

Kinyamasika offers a four-year theological and priestly formation course to major seminarians, prior to their ordination to the Catholic diaconate and priesthood. The seminary has churned out over • 400 priests since its inception.
