Father Leopold's given name “Mushobozi” means “the one who enables”, and he has dedicated his life to servicing and enabling those in his community. After primary school, Father Leopold entered the Ntungamo Preparatory Seminary and later St. Charles Rwanga Katoke Seminary for studies. He continued on to a university education and later accepted a scholarship in 2008 to join the School of Theology and Ministry at Boston College in Massachusetts where he earned a Master’s Degree in Pastoral Ministry with a concentration on Church Management. He served for one year in the Archdiocese of Boston, and returned to his diocese in Tanzania. He is now the first pastor of the St. Josephine Bakhita Parish. He has great goals to make it a vibrant and thriving parish.
Father Leopold continues to provide care to his community through spirituality as well as through the Parish’s services in the fields of education, health, environment, justice and peace, agriculture, women’s development, and relief services. The parish’s emphasis on protecting human rights has brought much-needed help and inspiration to - not only the parish - but the greater secular community as well.
