KAMPALA - The Orthodox Church of Uganda Archbishop is set for the enthronement of the Archbishop, his eminence Metropolitan Jernymos Muzeeyi.
The enthronement will take place on Sunday, Feb 20, 2022, at St. Nicholas Cathedral, Namungoona, Rubaga at 9 am.
The ceremony will be presided over by the Patriarchal representative His Eminence Metropolitan Makarios Tillyrides, Archbishop of Nairobi.
His Eminence Metropolitan Jernymos Muzeeyi was last month chosen by the Holy Synod Patriarchate Alexandria to replace Yona Lwanga, who died recently.
Muzeeyi will become the third Archbishop of the Orthodox Church of Uganda.
Archbishop Metropolitan Teheodoros Nakyama who died in 1997 was the first Archbishop followed by Lwanga who rested last year.
The Holy Metropolis of Kampala and Uganda was created 27 years ago after a split of the Holy Metropolis of East Africa in 1995.
Muzeeyi was born on March 18, 1962 in Bulopa, Luuka district of Busoga.
He went to Kasaka Primary School, Chwa 11 Memorial College, and Kololo Senior Secondary School. He also spent at the Mision Center in Namungoona and was groomed by Nakayama.
Muzeeyi had further studies at the School of Theology at the University of Athens where he was ordained in 1996.
He was Vicar of Kampala for a year before he moved to Bukoba in Tanzania in the same role until 1999.
In the same year, Muzeeyi was promoted to bishop of Bukoba and became Metropolitan of Mwanza in 2007.
