It is located right behind the Art Museum. And it is located within a block of Jewish, Hindu, and Buddhist religious centers, which is kind of neat. But there is nothing special about the church itself; St. Joseph, which is on the opposite end of the block, is much prettier.

this is a nice small church behind the Singapore art museum. I am catholic and it was just sad to see that the church was not maintained and is in dire need of a facelift.

An interesting and pretty church on Queen's street. It was built in 1870. I visited it last month and renovation work was due to start soon. The church needs a lot of work. The ceiling is peeling and a lot else is in a sad state. The Church has statues of Saint Peter and of Saint Paul atop the entrance... More

A run down church with a few stained glass windows, and couple of statues and not a lot else. Paint is peeling from just about everywhere, some of the doors are boarded up, which was to stop them falling down. Lots of signs about donations for renovations and this church certainly needs it. If you are just looking at things,... More

St. P & P was once a beautiful church. Currently the paint on the ceiling is peeling away and the lack of air-conditioning during 95degree/95 percent humidity sure allows one to focus on breathing and controlling heat problems. The mass is very well attended by locals and the sermon was very lively and nailed the day's readings. If you have... More

My father and I heard mass at this church on June 24, 2012 which is the feast of St. John Baptist. The priest who presided over the celebration really gave a meaningful homily. The church will undergo renovation late this year if i'm not mistaken. The Church is just a 2 min walk from the Bayview Hotel at Bencoolen St.

This Church is huge as well, great parking area, and location. It is near the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. But as you enter, you will notice that It is not well-maintained. It needs renovations and re-paintings in some areas. With its location and size, the Church will definitely look better once maintained. This Church also supplies Holy Bible and... More

One of the oldest Catholic Church in Singapore, the architectural style of the building is an art by itself. It is located near the Art House and is within walking distance from City Hall MRT station or Dorby Ghaut MRT station.
