Want to attend a catholic church service in Beijing? There four major catholic churches in Beijing, namely Nantang Cathedral (South Cathedral), Beitang Cathedral (North Cathedral), Dongtang Cathedral (East Cathedral) and Xitang Cathedral (West Cathedral). Each catholic church has its own unique Mass Times.

We highly recommend you go to Dongtang Cathedral (East Cathedral), which is also known as St. Joseph’s Church or Wangfujing Church. It is located on the most commercial street in Beijing – Wangfujing Street ( No.74 Wangfujing Street).

The St. Joseph Church was constructed in a Romanesque Revival style, well known for its fusion of European and Chinese styles in its design, featuring pilasters and three bell towers.

A large square outside the church is a public city park with 1.2 hectares, a good spot for wedding photos and Roller board skating. The square’s north end is adjacent to Wangfujing Street.

After attending church service, have a stroll along Wangfujing Street, rubbing with the locals and delved into the shopping and dining world.  The part of the wangfujing Street (810m) has been transformed into a pedestrian street since 1999.
