Brief information about the parish

Don Bosco Mission was officially started on 31 January, 1988 when the then Bishop of Murang’a, Mons. Peter Kairo, invited the Salesians of Don Bosco to the Diocese. On 1st January 1989 the Bishop entrusted to the Salesian Congregation the new Don Bosco Parish of Makuyu. The new parish territory was curved out of Sabasaba parish and was consisting of 8 outstations. The first parish priest was Fr. Felice Molino SDB. Now the Parish consists of 16 Local Churches, with three of them in the process of acquiring title deeds for their land so that they may construct permanent places of worship. The parish celebrated the silver jubilee of its existence on the 2nd of February, 2014, on the occasion of the parish Family Day.
