Sunday mass in Portuguese and Shangaan at 7:30, 11:00 am and 18:00 pm. Joyous and animated choir and inspired sermons. This is mainly a place of worship with nice stained glass windows that inspire prayer. Not a tourist attraction!

Although this church has significance to the people, honestly it is not very attractive. I will do more research on its history but there are many gorgeous buildings and churches in Maputo - I don't think this is one of them.

Much needed work is being carried out to keep this beautiful monument. The roof is being reinforced as well as the tower. Thumbs up!
