Katigondo national seminary at 101 years

Katigondo National Seminary is in its 102nd year of existence but, according to Rev Father Dr Herman Kituuma, the rector of the seminary, the centenary celebrations will be held in 2013. It sounds a little strange that the centenary activities were not held in 2011, exactly 100 years after the seminary was established at its present location in what is today Kalungu District (in Masaka Diocese).
