The pastoral care of the parish is entrusted to a Parish priest as its own shepherd under the authority of the diocesan bishop
Other high profile figures present were managing director of Centenary Bank, Fabian Kasi, who donated sh5m on behalf of the bank, Makindye Division mayor, Ali Mulyanyama, who also contributed sh500,000 towards the construction of a four-storeyed building to house the priests.
