Lively mass at 4 pm
Jan 2020 • Solo
It was so comforting to find a church where there’s a lively community and a choir that sung beautifully which made the mass more participative

Amazing to see this majestic cathedral in Hoi An. A testimonial to faith since 1615. Adjacent to the old town.

Excellent Place-Church so Beautiful
Nov 2019
This cathedral is North of the Old Town and it is worth finding it. You enter gates it is free and the whole area is so beautiful and clean. As you enter gates to your right is Mary holding Jesus placed into a huge tree. You can walk up the stars look around and theres a bench to sit and admire it. Then go down the stars and look at Cathedral walk around whole cathedral. So beautiful but it was closed so I could not go in. Nice place to visit and relax.

Impressive Building ... Impressive singing congregation
May 2018 • Solo
This was quite different to the mass at home... sure one could sort of follow what was happening, but it was mostly sung and for that reason along quite moving.
It was as hot as hell (??) but the building is fan-central by numbers alone and the very high ceilings and pale & white painted walls lessened the effect of such a hOtevening.
There were only 5 Westerners ispotted around the full church and we were the recipients of many smiles and greetings..

A wonderful Easter service
Apr 2018 • Couples
This will go down as one of our most unique Eastern experiences. We were staying a few miles outside the city but our tour guide informed us there was an English mass at 4 p.m. at The Cathedral. It was at least 80 percent full, maybe 70 percent tourist and 30 percent local. It was a wonderful service highlighted by two incredibly gifted singers (I actually thought I was listending to a CD until my wife pointed out it was live music). After the service, people mingled in a big courtyard and we met a nice couple from Australia who were making their fourth visit to Hoi An. From the church, we enjoyed a 15-minute walk to The Ancient City for dinner and shopping.

Sunday morning service (in Vietnamese)
May 2018 • Couples
My wife and I attended the Sunday morning service (thought it was in English, but it was actually in Vietnamese). We sat through the entire service, was a nice way to experience the lives of people in Hoi An. Interesting parts was the architecture of the cathedral, which was apparently rebuilt/renovated a couple of times in it's history, and the graves of the missionaries and church leaders buried on the grounds. The statues outside are beautiful, and there is evidently a lot of interesting history here.

English Mass on Sunday at 4 PM
Dec 2017 • Couples
Not far from ancient town but took an Uber anyway - just to get there on time. The place wasn't crowded (unlike Phat Diem) but the speakers and volume was turned to ear-splitting levels. If the priest and congregation aren't deaf, they soon will be. Midnight Mass was 9 pm....go figure.

Surprising Cathedral ..
Nov 2017 • Couples
Found it while touring and stopped in the see it. Primarily Vietnamese in attendance which was interesting. Told that first Christian missionaries landed in Hoi An in ancient times and founded the basis for this Cathedral. Enjoyable!
