The bishop of Fort-portal catholic diocese the most. Rev. Dr. Robert Muhiirwa has virtually launched a 2 billion fundraising campaign to renovate the roofing of Virika Catholic Cathedral.
Virika Cathedral which is the headquarters of Fort-portal catholic diocese was erected in 1968; it has been faced with leakages from the roof for a quiet long time.
Speaking at the fundraising launch drive today, the bishop said each Christian in the diocese is requested to contribute 5000 shillings, adding that several committees have been instituted to oversee the exercise.
Alex Ruhunda the Chairperson Fundraising Committee and Member of Parliament Fort-portal Central constituency appealed to each one to contribute towards the noble cause.
According to Christians who spoke to www.mknewslink.com ,this is the appropriate time to conduct such a fundraising as they are still in lockdown and by the time lock down gets over, they will be in position to utilize their cathedral without any disturbance.
