Building Shrine Church

To have a National Shrine Church is a long desire of us all and of the late Pope John Paul II, who blessed the foundation stone thirty years ago, during his visit to Kenya in 1980. The Church (50m in diameter) is designed on the image of the Crown of Mary. It has 12 corners symbolizing 12 stars of Mary’s Crown and surrounded by 12 columns symbolizing 12 Apostles (pillars of the Church), with capacity of 4500 seats. There are two small chapels, two offices and two sacristies. Underground is a smaller church (500 people), sacristy and two conference rooms. Together everything is possible.
