St. Paul’s Cathedral, Namirembe

Uganda / Africa

Saint Paul’s Cathedral Namirembe, commonly referred to as Namirembe Cathedral, is the oldest cathedral in Uganda.  It serves as the provincial cathedral of the Church of Uganda and the diocesan cathedral for Namirembe Diocese, the first diocese to be founded in the Church of Uganda province in 1890.  Between 1919 and 1967 the cathedral served as the provincial cathedral of the Church of Uganda, Anglican Communion.  In the 1960s the headquarters of the Church of Uganda moved to All Saints Church in Nakasero, then moved back to Namirembe later.  On 16 December 2012, the cathedral hosted the enthronement of the Most Reverend Stanley Ntagali (born 1955) as the 8th Archbishop of the Church of Uganda. The ceremony was attended by an estimated 3,000 people, including Robert Duncan (born 1948), Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America and John Sentamu (born 1949), Archbishop of York.  Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (born 1944), President of Uganda, was also in attendance.
