Welcome to the website of Christ the King Parish in Kampala. Whether you are already a parishioner or just visiting this site, please take some time to look around, to get to know our parish. Why does our parish exist? Why does this parish website exist?
The Uganda’s pioneer and only Capital City Catholic mission, Christ the King Parish, was founded by the Mill Hill Missionaries on October 30, 1930. Rev. Fr. Henri Jerssen was its founding parish priest.
Philippians 2 : 10; that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven and things on earth and things under the earth.
The church serves Christ The King Catholic Parish, which covers Nakasero, Kololo, and Old Kampala Many worshippers, however, come from other parts of the city and surrounding neighborhoods to pray at this location.As of September 2016, the seating capacity inside the church was about 600. Because of the size of the congregation, there is insufficient space inside the church to accommodate all the worshippers. During mass and other large events, tents are erected outside the church where worshippers follow the proceedings on loud speakers.
