April 5, 2021 (NAIROBI) - The Emeritus Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Juba, Paulino Lukudu Loro is dead. He was 81.

Lukudu, the Catholic Archdiocese of Juba said, died at a hospital in Nairobi, Kenya on Monday.

“His Grace Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro, a star that ceaselessly was shining over our church and nation for well over thirty years has this morning flickered out in the Kenyan capital city Nairobi,” the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Juba, Stephen Ameyu Martin said.

He added, “This tragic and saddest of all news will not only affect the church but indeed the wider community of our South Sudan society. I, therefore, announce, beginning as of today, a four-day mourning period for His Grace Archbishop Paulino Lukudu Loro.”

It, however, remains unclear when the deceased retired Archbishop will be laid to rest.

Born in August 1940, Lukudu joined the Congregation of the Comboni Missionaries and was ordained a priest in April 1970. He served in several churches in Sudan and was appointed archbishop of Juba on February 19, 1983, serving until he eventually retired in 2020.
