Mary Fount of Reconciliation, Lainisaba

Our History

This sub-parish is the core of the parish community; it has the same history as the origin of the parish. It is the centre of the administration work of the parish. Initially this sub-parish was bearing the name of the parish (Christ the king). Later In the year 2001 there were tribal clashes in Kibera (especially lainisaba), and during that time we sought the intercession of Mary Fount of Reconciliation and eventually the clashes stopped.

Soon after, by then parish priest Fr. Raul Nava made a request to the local ordinary, to have Mary Fount of Reconciliation the patron Saint of Lainisaba sub-parish. His request was granted and in the year 2003, Lainisaba sub-parish took Mary Fount of Reconciliation as their patron Saint. The early small Christian communities of this sub-parish were; St. Charles Lwanga, St. Salome, and St. Kizito. The leaders were; Stephen Mwori, Godfrey Kimotho, Peter Kibusa, Peter Mathai and Francis Muange among others.

The early parish groups were, St. Cecilia Choir, St. Mary Choir, and youth. As the parish continued to grow it led to the formation of other sub-parishes and Christian went to join the groups in their respective sub-parishes.

Currently the sub-parish has 12 small Christian communities, two choirs, PMC, and Youth among others.
