The cathedral to be erected in this historic place will be a reference for future generations that faith and actions in unity can restore a country like Rwanda that experienced the atrocity of genocide of 1994.

The Kigali Archdiocese is seeking to build a new home that will feature a state-of-the-art landmark building for the Archdiocese of Kigali, Rwanda. The value envisaged will foster the gospel mission, strengthen social-cultural cohesion and be multiplied through harnessing the architectural heritage of the site into a new referral Cathedral. The intended outcomes are a combination of a strengthened foundation for peace and attachment to a spiritual asset – the Church.

The site for the Cathedral of the Archdiocese of Kigali will accommodate the following:

  • Church with a minimum seating capacity of 7000 parishioners
  • Cathedral square which accommodates 30,000 worshippers
  • Parking which accommodates at least 1200cars
  • Residence of the Archbishop with offices
  • Offices of the Archdiocese
  • Priests Residence
  • Pastoral Center (Visitors rooms, meeting or retreat rooms, restaurant facilities, etc.)
  • Hospital
  • Landscaping
