The history of a parish Church is not the history of the Parish Community. But both histories, like many other great stories, hence a great deal in common; they are written by the personal stories of a great number of people. The Parish Church of an alive Christian community however, becomes the core where the drama of life unfolds and the different aspects of a hard but fascinating experience become a celebration.

The humble but steady beginning

In 1960 a group of missionaries took up residence at Mbuya Hill. They were known as Verona Fathers who are now known as Comboni Missionaries. They came to Kampala at the invitation of the Bishop of Jinja-Kampala with its Cathedral at Nsambya, the Rt. Rev. Vincent Billington who donated 8 hectares of land east of the City to them to set up a mission.

Bishop Daniel Comboni, their founder, had died in Khartoum in 1881. Two weeks before his death, he had written: “I have to confess that I have never been better endowed than now with true tested missionaries and sisters. They are all steadfast solid and unshakable in trials for this reason my plan which is a plan of God is to take the Gospel to the area of Great Lakes and Mountains that touch the Moon.”
