About The Church
Welcome to St. Bakhita Catholic Church; the fortunate one.
Located in the heart of Lashibi, we are a Christian family inspired by the virtue of our patron saint, Bakhita, founded on the virtues of love, charity and unity. We uphold Catholic principles and teachings, promote respect, love for humanity and service to the community, and above all, Christ-likeness.
The church was born from the need to accommodate and bring God closer to the flourishing faithful of Lashibi and its environs. Since its founding in 2005 as an out-station of Corpus Christi Catholic Church, Sakumono, it has grown significantly.
After over 15 years, Saint Bakhita Catholic Church now boasts a membership of over 1,000 people, a vibrant choir and brass band, children's service and an active youth front.
Members of the church serve the faithful and the community through Day Groups, ministries and several societies.Read More ...

The Word is the pivot around which the Christian faith revolves, for this, it is important that God’s people hear and understand His word. It is the duty of the lectors to serve the church with God’s word.

A body without a head is incomplete so is an organization without any form of leadership. The church's leadership is centered around the priest in charge, who presides over a Pastoral Council made up of members of the community. Their task is to ensure the smooth running of St Bakhita Catholic Church.
