The Xikai Church
hidden in the downtown area of Tianjin passes through the bustling Binjiang Avenue commercial street and goes straight south. At the end of the distance is the Western Kai Church. The top of the tower of the church has a bronze cross, and the echo of the blue sky is more solemn and full of historical brilliance.
Entering the interior of the church, it is the long hall-style cross-arc with the main colors of lake blue, yellowish and light white, giving a slightly fresh feeling.
The West Kai Church, which is located in the downtown area, is very different from the bustling style of the surrounding area. No matter who you are, you may be awe-inspiring to see this sacred building in the high-rise buildings. Even the heart that is moving is instantly calm and calm, and it is baptized and purified by the soul.
The West Kai Church is the largest Catholic church in Tianjin. At the end of Binjiang Road, it is very easy to find and can be seen from afar. The church does not accept tickets, but it is best not to wear knee-length shorts. You can't call in the church. You can't talk. (The rules written at the door)
I was the first time. When I came to the church, I had a loved one in the family but I never came. I came to the church and some devout believers were praying. They looked at them and suddenly felt very sacred. I sat on the bench and looked at the small church. The booklet has written some about the Lord, and Jesus has some "science".
The West Kai Church is not big, but it is very good, the top is light blue, and the windows are some pictures made of stained glass. When entering the door, there was a believer who said softly that there was a lecture, and everyone could come and listen. I don't know why, when I came to the church, I became very quiet in my inexplicable heart. I really hope that the Lord can hear what I said (although I didn't say anything). I feel that the Lord has been watching your every charity, maybe. This is the true meaning. The church is really a sacred, comfortable, and charitable place.
Come to Tianjin, I hope everyone will come and feel it.
The West Kai Church is located at the south end of the lively Binjiang Road in Tianjin. At the commercial streets there are huge buildings on both sides of the street, and the church standing tall is an absolutely beautiful landmark. This site selected for the church was not an accident by urban development, but an 18th century. The Holy society deliberately hoped that the bishop's seat would be located in the new Tianjin area at that time, in order to facilitate the spread of communication and doctrine. The riverside road that has been developed has become a lively pedestrian street. With hustling and bustling of the crowd, and the West Kai Church has a mass every time. It is a packed house, which is one of the most active Catholic churches in North China. This is probably the God's will. The Western Kai Church is a Romanesque building built by the French. It is worth mentioning that every brick in the church was from the French mainland. Perhaps the prosperity of the Western Kai Church is now impressed by this full sincerity. But I don’t know how much of it will be left after the years of war and turmoil. One should visit this place and should not forget to sit down for a while and look up at the beautiful dome. Whether it's a new brick or old tile, it carries too many traces of years and history.
The St. Joseph Cathedral is located at the southern end of the bustling Tianjin Binjiang Avenue Commercial Street. Built in 1917, it is the main cathedral for the Tianjin Catholic Diocese. The Church's architectural style is solemn, and its statues are beautifully crafted. Additionally, during mass and Catholic holidays, it is open to the public. You can take part in the festivities and experience the religious atmosphere for yourself.
