On Friday I asked at the Crowne Plaza hotel about the hours that the catholic church tucked into some nearby hutongs was open. God bless them, six people conferred and finally called someone who had the day off and they told me it would be open from 7 am to 11 am.
I went there today with a friend and we got their during mass. People were very hospitable despite our lack of a common language.
Soon I’ll get photos of the interior.
