Our History

After the conception of the Diocese Of Kuala Lumpur in 1955, the first Bishop, (Late Most Rev. Tan Sri D. Vendargon) was given the responsibility of building churches throughout his diocese in Kuala Lumpur. With the help and advice of a man of foresight, the late Rev.Fr.Belet, the Good Shepherd Church in Setapak was one of the Parishes identified. With the help of the late Fr.Limat, who was the Vicar General then, an appropriate architect, Mr. Balley from Booty Edwards, was found and the design conceptualized. Construction started in 1963 and completed in 1964, being officially opened by the then Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur, the late Most Rev. Tan Sri D.Vendardon, on 2nd August, 1964. Total cost of project (Church and Parochial House) was around RM 202,000/, inclusive of furnishings. At that time, it was considered the most modern designed Church in the Diocese.
