The Cathedral of the Good Shepherd is among the oldest catholic church building in Singapore. When i was visiting with my wife and son, the building itself seems to require restoration especially the facade that requires structural restrengthening. It is recommended to visit this building...More

The oldest Roman Catholic church in Singapore, the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd does somewhat resemble St. Martins Academy of the Fields church at Trafalgar Square in London from the outside. As a previous poster mentioned, it does seem this house of worship is overdue...More

This large church was impressive. The building is lovely and occupies a large city block. Inside the cathedral it is peaceful and quiet, with a relaxing atmosphere. The decoration in the Cathedral was fantastic and I found the place to be impressive. All the doors...More
