Welcome to the Catholic Parish of St. John the Apostle in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We are a young Church, rising from the ruins of poverty and genocidal regime. We live with joy in our simple lives and in the little things we have!
With a small Church being present in a predominantly non-Christian country, one asks what the Catholics have to contribute to this country with beautiful, loving and religious people. The answer becomes clear as one dwells deep into the heart of our faith: we want to walk with the people in their ordinary life and in their suffering. We want them to know, through our humble words and deeds that there is a God whom we do not see, God who is Father to all, full of love and compassion. God gives us all the rightful dignity as children – through Jesus Christ who has become human to make real God’s loving kindness, compassion, and promise of eternal life.
Welcome to the only Catholic Church in Siem Reap! There are no other Catholic Churches 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 6:00am to 7:00pm 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. There is also a souvenier shop where you can get some beautiful handicrafts made by the handicapped. If you want to contact the priests, please their contacts 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.
