Belief in God as Father and Holy Spirit is at the heart of our faith.

welcome to our church
It's the start of an amazing journey of faith

In the leafy suburbs of Milimani in Kisumu sits St Joseph Church, one of the oldest Catholic institutions in Kenya, dating back more than a century.
By 1901, the Kenya-Uganda railway had reached Kisumu, and trains would make stopovers at Kibos Railway Station.

The Mill Hill Missionaries arrived in Kisumu by train in 1903. Led by Fr Nicholas Stam, they walked to Bandani village, then mostly inhabited by construction workers, where they settled down and held their first Mass on February 2, 1903.
