Roman Catholicism in Swaziland

The Roman Catholic Church in Swaziland is part of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope in Rome.

There are approximately 60,000 Catholics in Swaziland - around 5% of the total population. The country forms a single diocese - the Diocese of Manzini.[1]

Roman Catholicism began in Swaziland in 1913 with the arrivial of Servite missionaries who began work in Mbabane. Two of Swaziland's bishops were born in Swaziland, MandleNkhosi Zwane and Ncamiso Ndlovu.[2]
