Glad I managed to attend Mass here last Saturday (11th March). Just a note, the church is directly opposite St Andrew's church and traffic was a little tight because St Andrew's had a service at the same time. I am not sure if the Priest who celebrated Mass is the Bishop of Brunei, but his homily was meaningful. I especially... More

During the hours of 12-2 everything was closed and this church was very welcoming we went in and saw they had a mass at 1830 for their anniversary. We walked back and it was such a wonderful mass and such a nice church community very lovely people

Size is reasonable for a small population but one must go at least 30 minutes before mass to get a good seat inside where it is air-conditioned. Seems to have a huge Catholic community in this Islam dominated country. The local parish priest is very friendly and approachable and is gifted in delivering the BEST sermons compared to all of...

Growing up in Brunei, this is the only official Catholic Church with an Anglican Church across the road. No other churches have ever been allowed to be built in this muslim country. The Catholic Church had undergone major renovations quite a few years back and now packs a full house almost every mass. Worth paying a visit here although it's... More
