Where is the nearest Catholic Church/ Service to Khao Lak?

1. Re: Churches

Thailand is a 95% Buddhist country - so even finding a Christian church of any kind - with services in English - can be a challenge - not to mention finding a Catholic church.

The Dusit Laguna Resort on Phuket at one time had (might still have) Sunday Services, but other than that - I am not familiar with anything being in the whole area around here. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist - just means I am not aware of it.

In Khao Lak, you will see numerous small churches - usually in store fronts, vestiges of the many religious relief organizations that came in after the 2004 tsunami. You might go in and ask if any of them are Catholic organizations or if they know of anything in the immediate area.

The Phuket Gazette lists a Catholic service at the Le Meridien Resort (just south of Patong Beach on Phuket) - their contact info is on the link below - you might contact them and ask them.

Hope that helps - at least a bit!

Thanks tedkarma. Will do some further research as suggested. It was some years ago but I'm sure there was somewhere in Phuket that we found. We always seem to find somewhere to go on a Sunday!

There is one in Khukkhak just about 3 km from the gas station.

The church is on the main road next to the "Home Mart". From the sarojin is about 5 minutes by car.
