Welcome to Nissei-Chuo Catholic Church
The Nissei-chuo Catholic Church is a parish in the Osaka-Takamatsu Archdiocese of the Roman Catholic Church.
It is located in Inagawa Town, Hyogo Prefecture.
There are about 400 parishioners, who come from the surrounding areas of Kawanishi City, Inagawa Town, Toyono Town and Nose Town.
The mass is celebrated in Japanese, however we do have the printed weekly missalettes in English to help you follow along. Children are always welcome, and there is a cry room for use as well. If you would like to speak to someone in English, we can arrange that for you, as a few of our parishioners do speak English.
Please feel free to drop by.
