Fr. John Baptiste Kyabuta



Father Jean Baptiste Kyabuta, pastor of St. Joseph Church in Madison, celebrates more than 35 years in the priesthood!

Ordained a priest in Manono, Congo, in 1988, he came to the Diocese of Nashville in 2007, where he was assigned pastor of Good Shepherd Church in Decherd, and St. Margaret Mary Mission Church in Alto. He has also served as chaplain for Knights of Columbus Council 3431 in Winchester and Fourth Degree Assembly 1742 in Tullahoma.

Father Kyabuta’s station in the diocese became official in 2008 when the late Bishop David Choby wrote a letter to Bishop Vincent de Paul Kwanga of Manono in gratitude for allowing Father Kyabuta to remain with the diocese.

Father Kyabuta was assigned to St. Joseph in 2017. He and Amy Lavender, principal of St. Joseph School, were recognized at the 2022 Advancement in Catholic Education Awards Event for their partnership with the Exemplary Leadership Award.
