  • A Catholic Church. Clean. Observing all Covid protocols so numbers are restricted. We attended Mass over there. A tranquil place for prayer and meditation.

  • For Catholics, a must for Sunday Mass. Plenty of parking space. The parishioners are very welcoming. Peaceful and tranquil for a quick worship as well.

  • I liked how Covid-19 protocols are being followed and spacing during Mass keep it up
  • The place is nicely secured with a guard at the gate. Prayers can be made freely without interruptions. The grounds are always clean and they have a tap that brings nice cold water all year round. One can easily meditate as well. There is a repository/shop if you ever want to purchase a sacramental and other amazing spiritual books. It's open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 0900am to 1530pm. They keep clean toilets as well😉 for both men and female.
  • It is my nearest point of worship, it's about 5 minutes drive
  • Holy Place
  • They have a lovely outdoor space available for prayer and meditation. As a visitor to Gaborone during covid, I found the church welcoming and hospitable. I attended the 7:30am Sunday service which was mostly in English (with a bit of Setswana).
