St Joseph’s Printery Kitovu is a diocesan printing press that was founded by Masaka Diocese.  It was started in 1982 with a small staff of 5 people. It is a fully registered company with the registrar of companies though not a limited company.  We comply with Uganda Revenue Authority guidelines. Kitovu printery has professional graphics designers and printers that can always set your work and give you necessary technical advice. We are invested with a high level of confidentiality and professionalism.

At first the printery was not working by its own, it was under the management and control of Masaka Diocesan Treasury. Later in 1989, the printery got its own management.

The Board of Directors comprised of six people, runs the company on behalf of the Diocese. And, the Manager often acts on behalf of the Board.

The original mission of the press was to help in producing Catholic =Pastoral oriented reading materials and thus propagating the kingdom of God through the printed word in the whole of the Diocese.

Far from neglecting its mission, the printery has not only extended its areas of operation to other Dioceses and to other Churches but also to the secular world including Government Administrative Departments and Non-Governmental Organisations.

And while St. Joseph’s Printery Kitovu aims at offering job opportunities to the people, it also strives towards self-reliance and self-sustainance.
