Visited there after the snow in Dec 2014, very good catholic church, similar to that of Harbin on Da Zhi Jie! I liked the design, gray but classic, like the St. Joseph's in Beijing. You can find some shops around the church

Sacred Heart is a beautiful Chinese (formerly Roman) Catholic cathedral in central Shenyang. Built in a beautiful traditional European style, it is the seat of the Chinese Catholic Diocese of Shenyang and has an active cycle of services.
