It is a small church but the architecture looks history. The English Sunday mass is at 11 AM. They used LCD monitors to tell what page to rad and what to sing.

This is one of the more traditional Cathedrals. It is not large but a real fine work of art. Take the time to look around this gem.

We discovered this Cathedral while out for an exploratory walk. It is set back a bit from the street and is fronted by a water feature with koi. The interior of the Cathedral is not lavish but pleasant and rather plain. Worth a view.

Charming and peaceful service. Gentle. Lovely singing and packed out - standing room only at the back and sides. Glad I stopped by and stayed for the service.

The cathedral is located close to Love River. The oldest cathedral in Kaohsiung with the beautiful fish pond where Hail Mary is placed in the centre surrounded by golden bars. Really beautiful.

Sorry for late response. We walked over from city centre - the cathedral is not far from the Love River, 10 mins walk.
