Welcome to the Catholic Parish of St. John the Apostle in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We are a young Church, rising from the ruins of war and a genocidal regime. We live with joy in our simple lives and in the little things we have! For us it is a moment of regathering was was left behind after the war, and a moment of hopefulness and joy as we teach the faith and ways of love and peace to a new generation of Cambodians in whose heart and culture the seed of the Word of God has been sowed.
Welcome to the only Catholic Church in Siem Reap! There is no other CATHOLIC Church in this city. Our other masses would be in our outstations (in villages) where we also maintain various social works and catechism programs.
Join us. You can come to the church everyday, anytime from 6:15am to 6:00pm to pray. Be ready to sit on the floor like when you are in the Buddhist temple. But there are folding chairs that you can pull and use. We have a souvenir shop where we sell carvings and religious articles – all in Cambodian designs – but we have temporarily closed the shop. If you need to contact the priests, press here.
The suffering of Cambodia has been deep.
From this suffering comes great compassion.
Great compassion makes a peaceful heart.
A peaceful heart makes a peaceful person.
A peaceful person makes a peaceful community.
A peaceful community makes a peaceful nation.
A peaceful nation makes a peaceful world.
May all beings live in peace.
