Diocese of Arua

 

Greetings to you and your Communities.

 

The Church law requires that in order to lawfully confer the Holy Orders of Diaconate and Priesthood, it must have been established in accordance with the Canon Law that in the judgment of the proper Bishop, the candidate possesses the requisite qualities and that he is free of any irregularity or impediment (CIC, Can. 1025). Consequently, I, Rt. Rev. SabinoOcanOdoki, the Bishop of the Diocese of Arua, hereby request you to announce the BANNS in the Parish Churches in conformity with the provisions of the 1983 Code of Canon Law (CIC, Can. 1051) concerning Deacon Samuel Njugunaof the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady of the Poor.

 

Deacon Samuel is to be ordained a Priest on the 8th July, 2018 at St. Joseph the Worker Parish, Omugo. The faithful are to bring to the knowledge of the Diocesan authority any irregularities and impediments, concerning the reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Order (cf. CIC, Can. 1043) by the candidate.

 

The announcement of the ordination banns should be done in the Parish Church on the receipt of this document till the ordination is done.
