Another church, another wedding, but unlike St Peter and Paul's, we could not gain admittance to the interior. The building dates to 1843 when the cornerstone was blessed and was consecrated in 1847, built in what was known as restrained Renaissance style with a Palladian portico. the steeple is based on Ionic style with a window on each face. It was elevated to cathedral status in 1888 and is the seat of the Archbishop. Various additions were made in ensuing years, and it underwent a major structural restoration in 2016. The grounds have a sculpture of 'Homeless Jesus' by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz. Elsewhere on the grounds are statues of Pope John Paul 11 and Saint Laurent Imbert, and the remnant of an earlier cathedral column plus various interpretative signage.

Traditional services. Very rigid volunteer staff, and not organised. Noticed volunteer staff bickering in church as services began. Not my choice of churches for regular services. Very disappointed as a Singapore visitor. Beautiful church but left a sour taste.

Beautiful cathedral. Attended the 8:30AM Sunday mass. Go early because the 10:30AM mass is so crowded; seats are put outside for the overflow of attendees. All prayers, responses and hymns are highlighted on the walls.

Tourist church with most coming for the photo op.
There are regular parishioners during mass timings.
Aircon, comfy seats, slightly elaborate. But that is probably because it is our mother church.
Lavish, expensive but prim and proper.

I always visit Catholic cathedrals on my travels so it was nice to have visited this one in a non-Catholic country. As expected, it was very small and lacks the more traditional opulent spires and ceilings and giant stained windows. Still beautiful, nonetheless. Simple and sacred.

Singapore has a plethora a great religious buildings and this is one of the larger and more visited churches. It is the main Catholic Church in the colonial quarter. It is a beautiful church exterior. We did not get to visit the interior. Another one of the great religious structures in Singapore.

This looked like it wasn’t a real building but like a chocolate box cathedral rather than a traditional cathedral. Beautiful inside and out though and well worth a look - not far from many hotels and walking distant to raffles.

Last time we visited the cathedral was closed for renovation, what a fantastic job they did. There is a basement chapel dedicated to perpetual adoration and a fantastic place a repose for quite meditative prayer.

There was quite a number of churchgoers. We didn't realise there were plenty of Catholics in Singapore. What was so impressive was their program for the poor, and another was the Christmas village in one of the buildings.

From the beautiful Nativity scene inside the Cathedral and the choir singing on Christmas morning. The souvenir shop was a real highlight with a huge animated nativity display and wonderful gifts to buy. People and staff were so welcoming and friendly, to make this a very special experience.
