Was hard to see it due to scaffolding covering both sides of the church. Interesting to see such an old structure in the middle of a more modern Vietnam

A functioning church in District 1. It is a landmark to me, as it is right beside the bus terminal for 109 to/from airport.

A must place for any tourist visiting Sagon District 1. Unique and beautiful French Colonial architecture, that has survived the ravages of time. a quiet place of worship frequented by the locals. A monument of old Saigon against a fast changing city and skyline

Passed by and dropped in for a quickie visit and weren't disappointed. Classic French colonial time frame and nicely done. Would feel at home in any French town. Active attendance was noted. Very peaceful.

We passed the church by and decided to go in. It was so peaceful and to hear a Halleluja song in Vietnamese was so beautiful. Loved it.

Haven't attended mass here. Don't think they have English mass. However in District 1, you can attend the 9.30am English mass in Notre Dame Cathedral on Sundays. The choir there sings beautifully in English. Attended mass... More
