|Digby Stuart College Chaplain Dies Unexpectedly|
Fr Kaggwa was described as "the most pastorally sensitive priest"
55 year old Fr Robert Kaggwa was Chaplain at Digby Stuart College as well as RC Chaplain to Roehampton University and Lecturer in Theology and Religious Studies had been taking medication for a heart condition but his death was sudden and unexpected.
Robert organised and chaired the first ever Interfaith Day at Roehampton in 2006 - covered by ICN, As chaplain and lecturer he trained students for leadership and meaningful involvement in areas of theology, social justice, conflict resolution, volunteering and fundraising.
Writing on Facebook, Professor Tina Beattie said:"Many of us had spent time with him during the last few days and he was his lovely, laughing, generous self, which is how I shall always remember him.
Describing him as "the most pastorally sensitive priest" she ever knew Tina writes: " Every year, he accompanied a group of students on the HCPT pilgrimage to Lourdes, and those many pilgrimages were wonderful experiences of loyal friendship, gentle leadership and quiet attentiveness to all in his care. Students of all faiths and none loved Robert and I don't think any of us will ever know how many he guided, counselled and befriended during their time at Roehampton. Through his encouragement and support, I know many students were able to continue their studies when they might otherwise have given up. Every Tuesday during term, he cooked a fairtrade lunch for students and staff which often attracted large numbers. It epitomised the spirit of warmth and welcome that he dedicated himself to creating in the chaplaincy.
