Father Deogratias Kiibi Kateregga has been transferred back to Mpigi from Lubaga cathedral.
The 33-year-old priest who rose to fame after his homily at the late Mozwey Radio’s funeral, has been around Rubaga cathedral for some years.
Fr Kiibi was born on July 8, 1986 to a family of nine children – three girls and six boys.
His parents are Dr Augustine Kateregga, a doctor at Kaliisizo hospital and Teddy Nabayunga a nurse, who live in Kyotera district.
Fr Kiibi attended Bukinda Seminary in Kabale, Kisubi Seminary in Entebbe, Katigondo National Major Seminary in Masaka and Ggaba National Major Seminary before joining Pontifical Urban University, Rome in Italy. He also has a master’s degree in Journalism and Communication from Makerere University.
Kateregga was ordained priest by Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga in 2014. He worked in Ggoli parish in Mpigi district before he was transferred to Lubaga parish in 2015. In Ggoli, he headed the youth chaplaincy of the Ggoli Catholic Parish.
At Lubaga, Fr Kiibi was appointed information coordinator for the archdiocese, a position that influenced his going back to school to acquire a master’s degree in Journalism and Communication.
