excellent to visit on a hot day during the summer. in the winter is just a very sad place to visit, because its super cold inside and everything just too gloomy and depressing.

This is a real church where Catholics and Christians go to on Sunday mornings to celebrate the Holy Mass. the service is in English at 11:30 every Sunday. All are welcome. It is encouraging that I was able to continue attending mass and participate in the parish life after I started working in Tianjin. Catholics and others visiting or working... More

We went Sunday morning to visit and it was packed. For religious people, it is a must. The church is beautiful and the Chinese liturgy is amazing spiritual even if you do not understand the language.

Worth a short visit if you are seeking a spiritual break in an otherwise busy city. We took a short detour to visit this church on our way to the Porcelain House

The church is interesting and its history is available in English. No charge to enter as it is still a functioning church so... More

Extremely well maintained and accessible. Beautiful exterior and an interior with numerous artefacts, paintings and statues. I was lucky enough to visit at Easter so it was thronging with visitors and locals.

Being in China for a few months and loving French/Italian churches, this church felt like coming home. It's simply stunning. If you're in Tianjin I suggest you visit this, if you have the time.

Xilai church is a functioning church. It is one of several Catholic churches in Tianjin probably a result of the Concession era. Interesting architecture and reminder of the past era. Well worth a visit as it is the end of 'shopping street' just across Nanjing Lu (use bridge) and lots of cafes where you can take a rest.

One of the things I like doing when I travel is attending mass in a different country and I am not soo ambitious, so I would go for the English Mass. Now, it's November in China and the weather was just cold and slightly wet. It rained before I arrived, so I could see that the floor was wet. I... More
