  • 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.  more »
  • Well located, very close to the Center. The Church is beautiful with gardens to your back, outer chapel being places clean and well-maintained. For Catholics, is the main Catholic Temple in Gaborone where you can watch cults, masses and make their prayers. Nice place to spend a good time. Being for Gaborone, worth it.

  • What an amazing church. The people are very welcoming and the times set for church service are very convenient. Thanks to the parish.
  • Nice, quiet place if you are religious, you can even light a candle outside and say a prayer is the church doors are closed.
  • Excellent morning service. Strategically placed by the main mall and morning service times convenient for all including those starting work early.
  • Chair of Peter in The Catholic Diocese of Gaborone. A large cathedral conducive for Mass, prayer & quiet reflection
  • Awesome place to be
