Nothing special
Jun 2019 • Solo
Probably, it is a special church for Brunei, since there are only 3 churches in the country but overall, you would not even notice such a church somewhere in Europe or America.

A perfect church for a weekday Mass
Dec 2018 • Couples
We avoid this church on weekends especially Sunday and moreover during the Holy season as we were warned it would be packed like sardines, very crowded and parking extremely difficult. But as it turned out, it is a perfect place for weekday Mass for us. We came early had no trouble parking and Mass was enjoyed by all as it wasn't crammed, temperature perfect and the service was well enjoyed by all.

Faith Affirming
May 2018
Great to have a Catholic Church in an Islamic Country, that even if you are on vacation, your Catholic faith is being reaffirmed.

NICE AND SOLEMN, BUT MORE ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
Dec 2017
We visited this place last Christmas Day 2017; the chapel interior reminds me of Caleruega. As there was no Holy Mass when we dropped by, finding the location of the chapel was difficult. There are some buildings / offices / doors with no labels, that the first room we entered was the dining hall. :-) :-) Nonetheless, for a Muslim country, this place is good enough to practice Christian faith.

A peaceful place of prayer for the Catholic Traveller
Aug 2017 • Friends
Had the opportunity to hear Mass here, celebrated by none other than the Bishop of Brunei. Right across from the residences where we stayed, it was a five minute walk. Nothing grandeur or extravagant - maybe not even too much history to it at all. But it has its charms that make hearing Mass here special.

Nice church
Mar 2017 • Solo
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 liked the painting / poster behind the St Vincent de Paul statue.

A quick stop
Dec 2016 • Family
We were in Brunei on Christmas day and saw the hundreds of people parked here to enjoy the Christian celebrations. I would not recommend spending too much time here, but would stop by when in the area.

Church of our Lady Assumption or "COLA" ( Catholic church)
Jan 2016 • Family
Catholic Church of Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei Darussalam. Located around 1 kilometer from Town centre, along Jalan Tutong. If you are walking from Town, walk pass Royal Regalia, 2nd traffic light along Jalan Tutong,turn right and ,10meter from Jalan Tutong on the left. across the Catholic church are a Blue colour Anglican Church.

It has comfortable air conditioned seat inside and also outdoor seat. Look at other info for mass services.

On Friday, the whole country except airport and border immigration will be closed from 12.00 noon to 2.00 pm. If you are a Catholic, you may like to use this time to visit the Church to attend Mass(12.30 to 1.00pm). After Mass you can have fellowship with the priest and parishioners in the priest private quarter.

The Church also has quiet places who like to pray in private. It also has a little garden with beautiful pool full of beautiful Japanese carp
