Welcome to Mzuzu Diocese

Every Thing, Except Sin, is Sacred

Message from the Bishop

As a church, our belief and work is Christocentric, that is, it centers on Christ and is modelled after his life and teaching. Luke 4:18-19 " The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour."


The vision of the Catholic Diocese of Mzuzu is to be a family of God’s Kingdom transformed by the Gospel of Christ.


The Catholic Diocese of Mzuzu is a united family of Christians whose mission is to proclaim the gospel through pastoral care and social economic development so that people’s lives are transformed to be good disciples of Jesus Christ and stewards of God’s creation

The parish is the core of Catholic life in our local communities. In every parish of our diocese, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has been particularly acute. Our collective mission to spread the Gospel is challenging without a financial lifeline. It therefore important that our parishes and priests receive the offertory support they need to remain operational through this time without in-person weekly Masses.The Diocese of Mzuzu encourages all its congregant to observe set standard operating procedures in public place . 

Thank you for your hopeful witness of the Gospel as you bring in word and action God’s invitation to all those suffering around us.
