Father Lawrence Kizito Kimbowa


I was at the Church of Our Lady Of Lourdes today and the main celebrant was this priest from Uganda named Father Lawrence Kizito Kimbowa. One thing I like about this priest is that his sermons are really touching. He was at the church last week as well when I went to Mass. At the end of the Mass, he said something that would stick with me for some time.

He said that he would be leaving for Uganda in a couple of days time. He also said that we in Singapore are blessed because the priests here, they do not have to worry about food. He said in Uganda, they grow their own food. He also said that his church in Uganda does not have pews. People sit on the floor.

I was humbled by that. We take so many things for granted here in Singapore. Here is a Ugandan Catholic priest, who celebrated Mass with us, telling us what it is like in his township, where he is the parish priest of a church. Thank you Father Lawrence. That brief time you spent with us here in Singapore was a lovely one. Have a safe flight back to Uganda
