The Roman Catholic Church is represented at Lusambo by the Gent Brothers of Charity and by the Scheut Fathers at St Trudon.
A decree of December 1888, permits all private associations whose object is of a religious, scientific, or philanthropic nature to acquire a civil personality and to obtain grants for land which shall not exceed 50 ha in extent in any one locality. In the case of the Roman Catholics, however, a convention concluded with the Holy See in 1906 enables missions established with the consent of the State to receive 100 or even 200 ha of agricultural land free of charge. In return the missionaries bind themselves to engage in educational work.
