Masaka Catholic Diocese is large and diverse, with a wide variety of ministries. These pages reflect the many ways in which we strive to serve God through service to His people. As you visit the various pages on this web site, the mission of the Diocese will become clear

“For thou shalt be His witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard” Acts 22:15.

To join us in our work, please visit one of our churches, or search for a school, or learn how you can support our Charitable, Educational, and Pastoral Mission.


Welcome to the official website of Masaka Catholic Diocese in Uganda. You will find on this website information about different departments in Masaka including parishes, religious communities, clergy, institutions, among others; the different commissions, institutions, and departments of the Catholic Diocese, as well as important links to the Church universal and its organs. You can also read about the recent publications and press releases. We hope that you do enjoy your visit to the Diocese Website.

 Masaka Catholic Diocese is composed of 55 parishes from 9 districts in the Greater Masaka Region of the Catholic faith in Uganda, constituted with the approval of the Holy See, through which the religious fathers, sisters, and brothers express their collegiate responsibility through collective action, to assure the progress of the Church and coordination of its social and pastoral ministry. It is headed by a Bishop who is elected by the Pope. He is assisted by an Executive Board, also chosen by the Bishop.
