It is the biggest Roman Catholic church in South Africa planned by planner Anthony Noel Errol Slaven.
It is situated in Rockville, Soweto, a crowded dark urban local location inside the city of Johannesburg.
Because of the part it played as a position of get-together for the general population of Soweto in the prior years, amid, and after the counter politically-sanctioned racial segregation battle, it is frequently alluded to as "the general population's congregation" or "the general population's church".
In 1997, President Nelson Mandela set up 30 November as "Regina Mundi Day" to respect the church.
The church is situated amidst Soweto, in Rockville, in the area of Moroka it was worked in 1964, supplanting Moroka's previous ward church.
While the A-formed outside of the building is very normal in outline, its primary component is the immense inside, that can suit upwards of 5000-7000 people.
The recolored glass windows are brightened with scenes of Mary's life and were given by Poland in 1998.
