Cathedral at Boga, DRC
Left, the Altar at Boga Cathedral. Made from the wood of one of the trees planted by Apolo Kivebulaya, who brought Anglicanism to DRC in 1896. Right is a picture of his grave. Apolo Kivebulaya volunteered to go from Uganda to Boga to evangelize. I was told the local chiefs resisted, but he was not discouraged. He is known to have evangelized the Pygmies as well, who we met at Mafifi in May 2008.
The cathedral is beautifully built ...
