This was a beautiful old church, unfortunately we were not able to go inside. The exterior was very pretty and the history related to us by the guide was fascinating.

The mass times on Sunday for this church are:
1) 7:00am
2) 9:00am
3) 4:30pm

The mass at 9:00am (which I attended) was conducted in Kiswahili. Not sure about the other times.

We were wondering around Stone Town and stumbled across St. Joseph's Church. It took us a bit to find the entrance since the regular front entrench was locked, but once we figured out how to get in - it was great! We walked around the grounds and eventually went into the church where there was a wedding taking place! What an experience to get to see the ceremony with an amazing choir!

This is an area abundant in religious monuments and buildings. Over 50 mosques and many Christian churches and Hindu temples. This cathedral would be the best choice to see as a building representative of the Christian faith in this area.

This church is unfortunately closed most of the time and the best time to visit it is for interested tourists to go during the mass. The building is quite beautiful and if you do not wish to participate in the mass just sit for 5-10 min in a pew and admire the interior.
