Kotido Diocese: Bishop elect, the third symbol in his Coat of Arms is the Eucharist with its significance of being the center of the Mission because our life as Christians is rooted in the Eucharistic since Christ promised that those who partake His Body and Blood will have life, the reason why celebrating the Eucharist with devotion, Eucharistic adoration, love and faithfulness to the mission in the church will be the center of his ministry as a bishop.
He further informed AMECEA Online correspondent that following the spirituality of Comboni Missionaries, he has chosen the symbol of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that shows the passion, the love our Savior has for humanity, the same love he expects to help him embrace people of all walks of life in his ministry as a bishop with zeal, and strength from Christ in the Eucharist and guidance from the Holy Spirit.
When asked to share how he will start his pastoral ministry in Kotido diocese, he responded by saying, at the moment there may be many needs in the diocese, but that what is important is for people to be taught to know how to live their Christian faith in unity with one another in God.
The Bishop elect who will be consecrated and enthroned on 14th January 2023 disclosed that with the faith in God and cooperation from the people, the flock should be ready to move as a family because God knows how to guide His people in every step they take in their Christian life.
