LGBT and human-rights activist Bishop Christopher Senyonjo, known as the Desmond Tutu of Uganda, will return to San Diego next month to update his supporters on the dire conditions in his homophobic homeland.
The bishop and his wife, Mary Senyonjo, will be in America’s Finest City from Aug. 19 through Aug. 27 to kick off a tour of the U.S.
Bishop Christopher will preach at 8 and 10:30 am services on Sunday, Aug. 21, at St. Paul’s Cathedral. He will also participate in the church’s Sunday Forum at 9 am.
St. Paul’s Cathedral and a sizable number of LGBT allies in San Diego have embraced the bishop and his heroic efforts to minister to the LGBT community in Uganda and elsewhere in Africa, where homosexuality is considered taboo.
The Rev. Canon Albert Ogle of St. Paul’s Cathedral works closely with Bishop Christopher and is president of St. Paul’s Foundation for International Reconciliation, which raises money for the bishop’s efforts in Uganda.
