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

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

The Church can be seen for miles thanks the long Binjiang Road, and is a good photo opportunity in the daytime. Nice area around too with small cafes and no one to bother you, unlike other parts of Tianjin.
