Glenn to the Diocese of Lugazi, specifically in Mbikko Parish in Uganda. The newly ordained thanked everyone for supporting him and coming to his ordination.

On the afternoon of the same day, Fr. Glenn presided at his first mass of thanksgiving. Six of us Mill Hill Missionaries concelebrated with him together with his very supportive parish priest, Fr. Ramil Bigcas and his mentor and homilist, Fr. John Lusa. In his homily, Fr. Lusa mentioned how he knew Fr. Glenn and how missionary determination will help in having successful missions of loving and serving. Once again, Fr.
