Christ the Teacher Catholic parish was built in the late 1990s through the assistance of the Maryknoll Society. It is located in a piece of land at its current location in Kenyatta University's main campus. It has several post-modern facilities such as a church and a Blessed Sacrament Chapel, chaplaincy offices, Seminar room, Library and Bishop Ndingi parish hall. The hall, under the chaplaincy of Fr. Lance P. Nadeau is the most recent to be completed constructed . It has a capacity of 600 people. The parish offices, seminar room and the equipment store were completed by the year 2000.Initially the services (masses) were conducted in a small chapel that later proved too small to the vastly growing number of catholics .The generous contribution and support of Maryknoll through the chaplaincy of father Edward Philips enabled the construction of the church and the chapel in 1999.
Through the chaplains provided by the MaryKnoll society, five major achievements have been made so far as the university ministry is concerned.
