REGINA MUNDI CATHOLIC CHURCH

Popularly known as the "People's Cathedral", Regina Mundi ("Queen of the World") was a rallying point during the dark days of apartheid, offering sanctuary as well as spiritual comfort to people from various liberation movements. The foundation stone was laid in 1962 by Cardinal Montini, who became Pope Paul VI, and the church was built by Father Gerard Coleman O.M.I. and his congregation.
