Sacred and Healing
Oct. 2019
I attended Sunday Mass when visiting Bandung City in October.
It is just a wonder, when I attend Mass in Indonesia, that Catholics in Indonesia look more faithful than people in any other parts of the world. I always become so excited and healed when I attend Mass there. St. Peter's Cathedral in Bandung is located in the center of the city, and of course a beautiful church. I am so proud of Catholics in Indonesia who keep their faith to Christ in not-Christian-friendly environment.
If you are Catholic and visiting Bandung, please come and pray to Lord at St. Peter's.

Interesting church
Sep. 2019 • Couples
The church has interesting history and architecture. I didn’t expect to find a Catholic Church in a Moslem majority area. But this shows there’s good religious relationship between the people

A beautiful grotto next to the church
Sep. 2019 • Couples
This beautiful grotto is a sight to behold .. candles r made available for anyone, everyone .. w a few rows of pews, tt allows parishners to sit in silence, in prayer ..

The St Peter's Cathedral in jln merdeka is a beautiful, yet simple church .. w a wooden ceiling tt towers high abv .. designed by Wolf Schoemaker in Neogothic style .. and consecrated in 1922 .. there is a beautiful baptismal chamber at the left ent of the church .. sat sunset service was in bahasa indonesia, as was the sermon, but not beyond our comprehension ..

Beautiful cathedral in Bandung
Apr. 2019 • Couples
This is a really nice and pretty old cathedral located in the heart of Bandung. I actually drive past it everyday but this was my first time to visit it. There is a large carpark with more parking space on nearby roads.

The cathedral is not a very large one but still very impressive both inside as well as the exterior with beautiful architecture. The age of the cathedral is almost a hundred years old so it was built during the Dutch colonial era.

Directly across the road from the cathedral is Bandung's main police headquarters which is quite comforting in this day and age. Also, I noticed that there was always a police car parked in the carpark.
