Catholics at Likuni Parish in Lilongwe on Sunday put aside Bibles and Jesus crosses to exchange blows over disagreement of a parish priest.
Lilongwe Police Station publicist Kingsly Dandaula confirmed the police rushed to the parish to pacify the place.
He said there were no injuries after the violence.
Reports indicate that some members of the church are not happy with Parish Priest.
They want him out of the parish and presented the matter to Lilongwe Diocese for action.
However before a decision was made, some of the Catholics wanted to remove the priest by force as he was about to lead mass, annoying a section of the Catholics who opposed the move leading to the fracas.
This is the first time in recent history that Catholics have fought in Church after Muslims and Christians of Zambezi Evangelical Church.
The Catholic leadership is yet to comment on the matter.
The fight comes barely a week after the holy week of Easter, when Catholics follow to the latter church rituals to remain holy as they commemorated the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ whom Christians believe is the Son of God.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
