John Ssenyondo, MCCJ, MA/MDiv ’91
Comboni Missionary, Fr. John Ssenyondo takes his place as one of several authentic martyrs who are alums of CTU in its brief history. A native of Uganda, John ministered to the persecuted indigenous peoples in the Diocese of Chilpancingo-Chilapa, Mexico. In April 2014 he was kidnapped by armed men as he returned home from celebrating a wedding and his remains were later discovered in a mass grave. Fr. John’s life is a compelling witness of the gospel values of justice and courage.
