Brief history of Diocese:
The Diocese of North-Kivu started on the 23rd of February 1992. It has seven (7) Archdeaconries, forty four (44) parishes and seventy seven (77) priests. There are eleven (11) departments and the Diocesan secretariat. Our Diocese has been suffering from the impact of the two wars of liberation since 1996 and the various incursions by different militia. Our Christians live in a state of insecurity and poverty and these people need someone to come to their Aid.
