Telipok is a town located about 15 kilometres north of Kota Kinabalu. The town is within the administration of Kota Kinabalu City Hall and is a sub-district of the city.  The Holy Family Church was blessed on 23 Nov 1972 by Bishop Peter Chung, assisted by Fr John Tsung and Fr Joseph Dapoz.  It has a school and a convent with boarding facilities located within its compound.  It is one of the two churches administered by the resident priests of St Catherine Inanam.  The other church is Good Shepherd Manggatal.  The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception (FSIC) set up a community here in 1987 and a hostel for girls.  The parish hall was built in 1992.
