In the year 2003, faithful belonging to the small Christian community of St. Antony of Padua of St. Peter Claver Parish, Mbezi Louis began praying at Malamba Mawili, in the plot of land they had acquired. In 2004 a chapel was built after realizing the need for a structured place of worship. In 2008 this chapel was given a facelift, and further in 2009, it was declared as substation of St. Peter Claver Parish after having placed under the patronage of St. John of the Cross. Then on 7th July, 2017 this was made fully pledged parish by His Eminence Polycarp Cardinal Pengo.
