The Saturday mass was in tribal language, not Vietnamese because the attendance were the tribe people. The structure was great and made itself symbolic of Kontum. There was an orphange next to the church.

Just kidding. A splendid looking church. The structure definitely atands out among the local buildings. Thats all i can say. The walls of the church are now reinforced with cement. Visit the orphange behind the church. Walk around. No one will stop u.

There's not a lot of sites in Kon Tum and this church is nothing special either. It's a quiet and peaceful visit, don't think they get a lot of tourists visiting. Good for if you have nothing to do, but completely skip-able.

We walk to this church in the morning from our hotel - Indochine, 15minutes walk. The atmosphere in the morning is quite good, make you feel very calm. You can also have a good photo there.

if it is possible, go there on saterday evening before 6. Then the church is open, you can visit. Bhnar people is sitting in the garden at that moment, because the mass starts at 7 pm. The church and the people, bouth are really worth to see

This church has a very different design and it is very bright with lots of windows. It is situated on very large grounds which contain an orphanage for mostly teenagers from what I saw.

If you are looking for ACTION, bad news! This is not the place to be BUT if you need to take a step back & take things a little slow or find time for self-reflection, this would be a nice place. I was there on a mission trip & stayed in the church with our friendly host, Father John.

The stained glass is fantastic. Gorgeous wooden benches. If the front door is not open then walk around to the back. Make sure to visit the orphanage behind the church!
