Create an itinerary including Maula Cathedral
Experience African praise worship by taking part in a mass at Maula Cathedral. Expect a busy collective due to this cathedral's popularity (especially at the 8 a.m. mass) and its convenient capital city location. Quieter times for mass are possible (like at 5 p.m.), but the bustle adds to the communal atmosphere of the cathedral.
