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... More

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"

Just a simolke church. Nothing much to see except for the building. Nearby some good coffee places and shopping mall. 30 minutes is enough.

For being in the "Top 5" for Tianjin on TripAdvisor, it was a bit of a disappointment. The church is nice to see, but you can do it in about 5-10 minutes. It pales in comparison to cathedrals in Europe and feels a bit dingy.

Went inside to take a look and it is a beautiful church which was built by the French. Not sure how old it is but its definitely worth a look on the inside since it was very well preserved and very elaborate.

This church was amazing. If I lived in Tianjin, I'd absolutely attend services here. I didn't actually get to attend mass because I couldn't find accurate info about the times, so here they are: They have mass Monday-Saturday at 6 am and 7:30 am, although I can't tell you what language they're in. Sunday mass is as follows: 6, 7:30,... More
