Gulu Archdiocese is in search of 108 million shillings for the installation of the new Archbishop, Most Rev. Raphael P’Mony Wokorach (63) set to take place on July 12th at St Joseph’s Cathedral in Gulu City.

This comes nearly four months after his appointment by His Holiness Pope Francis on March 22 this year as the second Archbishop of Gulu Archdiocese since its creation in 1999, replacing Archbishop Emeritus John Baptist Odama who retired after clocking 75 years.

The archdiocese has so far raised 2.5 million shillings of the required funds.

Archbishop emeritus, Dr. John Baptist Odama is now urging everyone including Christians, non-Christians, well-wishers, corporate companies and non-corporate companies and the business community to support the event through contribution in cash or in kind to host over 2,500 people expected to attend.

People wishing to support the Archdiocese can do so through The Registered Trustees of the Gulu Diocese Uganda, Centenary bank Gulu branch on account number 3203562431 or on mobile money number 0776-989-626 registered in the name of The Registered Trustees of the Gulu Diocese Uganda or directly to the central organizing committee.

Before his appointment in March this year, Archbishop Wokorach, a member of the Comboni Missionary, has been Bishop of Nebbi Catholic Diocese since March 2021.
