    A Catholic sect that allows its priests to marry has registered and opened a branch in Uganda, with its headquarters in Jinja.

    The Catholic Apostolic National Church, which does not allow women to become priests, has attracted a few Roman Catholic priests.

    Its African archbishop, Mbewa Anzanga, a former Zambian Roman Catholic priest, has appointed Leonard Lubega the first bishop-elect for Uganda.

    Lubega, a PhD graduate in Biblical Counselling from a US university, has already received an apostolic mandate for his election as Uganda’s first bishop.
    Lubega, who is also a lecturer at Kampala International University, was formerly a Charismatic Catholic Church priest.

    Mbewa is due in the country in January to ordain over 10 priests and officially launch the new church in Uganda.

    In an interview with The New Vision in Jinja, Lubega clarified that the Catholic Apostolic Church is not under Pope Benedict XI but it recognises him and prays for him during its daily masses.

    Lubega said in order to avoid confusion, it is best to use the Brazilian Catholic Church when referring to their church, adding that their priests can marry before or after ordination.

    The Brazilian Catholic Apostolic Church is an independent Catholic church established in 1945 by Brazilian bishop Dom Carlos Duarte Costa, a former Roman Catholic Bishop of Botucatu.
    Costa started the church after falling out with the Catholic Church and he was excommunicated.

    The Brazilian Catholic Church acknowledges divorce as a reality of life and permitted in Holy Scripture, and will marry divorced people.

    Asked whether they are real Catholics, Lubega answered in the affirmative. “We are Catholics but not Roman Catholics. Just remember that every Roman Catholic is a Catholic but not every Catholic is a Roman Catholic.”

    The Catholic Apostolic Church has over 25 priests in Uganda. This includes William Obonyo, a convert from the Roman Catholic Missionaries of Africa White Fathers in Tororo. It currently has about 10,000 followers in Busoga and Buganda.

    That being the case, then this church is no longer a Roman Catholic church, its just some belief else!

    Catholic church doesnt operate in that way;its has its central chain of directives!

    I dont see no wonder on them, coz its high time they should do so, as per Bible!

    Kanisa hili halifuati mafundisho ya Kristu kwani Kristu mwenyewe alisema atakemwacha mkewe na kuoa mwingine azini.
