Built with bricks coming all the way from France, completed in 1916. Part of the former Tianjin French concession, one of the nicest old building of Tianjin. Today it is a Catholic Church very active.

Went there on a Sunday with some friends. Was pleasantly surprised to see how well attended it was. Beautiful well preserved building, it is a mystery how this and so many other 'western ' style buildings survived the Cultural Revolution. The times of the services are written outside in both English and chinese, as well as requests for visitor behaviour,... More

The church is good. I saw there is written"we need your help and your talents serving the Lord", so I asked a Chinese volunteer about that for wanting to help in some way. But his attitude was very indifferent and unfriendly, just said "next week", no other details or explanation...

As a native of the city and growing up in the same area, I have witnessed this Catholic church in the past decades. In recent years, I noticed that it has attracted more and more church-goers, mostly older women in their 50s and 60s, but it's not rare to see many twenty-somethings attend the Sunday mass. I wasn't sure these... More

I happened to visit this Catholic Church during the Holy Week, was extremely satisfied that I could fulfil my obligations of piety and solemnity. As is usual in any church, volunteers help u to guide you if u are found blank. The English services were at 11:30am and 7:30am though patrons were mostly expats and a few locals. Church was...

As a Catholic, I like to visit catholic churches around the world so I sought this one out. It was not terribly impressive but does have a somewhat interesting history and would be a worthwhile stop for many. It is located right next to a thriving shopping area and you can find a Starbucks right there, if that is to... More

The church was well preserved and had very beautiful paintings. I especially found the sign in front of the church very helpful. It said among other things: "No Loving", Do Not Destroy Everything" and "Do not Take"
