Apolo Kivebulaya was a Ugandan Anglican priest and evangelist who is considered the pioneer of Anglican missions in the Belgian Congo, now the Democratic Republic of Congo. He is also known as the “apostle to the Pygmies” for his work among the Bambuti people of the Ituri Forest in eastern Congo.
A brief biography of Apolo may be found in the online Dictionary of African Christian Biography.
Almighty and everlasting God, we thank you for your servant Apolo Kivebulaya, whom you called to preach the Gospel to the people of Congo and to the Bambuti people. Raise up in this and every land evangelists and heralds of your kingdom, that your Church may proclaim the unsearchable riches of our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
