Resource Toolbox

Apostle of Uganda, born France, 1854; died Uganda, Africa, 1890. In 1874 he was admitted to the noviceship of the White Fathers at Algiers. With a band of ten, he was sent in 1878 to found a mission at Uganda. Received by King Matesa, in spite of the opposition of Arabs and Protestants, he opened the mission in 1879. During the ascendancy of the Arab party at court, the missionaries were obliged to withdraw to Bokumbi, but were invited back to Uganda in 1885. Years of persecution, civilwar, and foreign invasion followed, but the Catholic missions were finally restored. At his death, there were 12,000 Catholics and a large church at Roubaga.
