South Cathedral, Beijing

Exterior

During my recent trip to Beijing, I was able to attend mass at the South Cathedral, which dates back to the mid 17th century when Adam Schall, S.J. opened this church. The mass at 10:30 is in English and included French readings. It was wonderful to see people from all over the world praying together.
