In St. John the Apostle Catholic Church, wood carvings form the other important aspect of our community enterprise. The Cambodian people are tremendously gifted in the art of wood crafts. In and around Siem Reap are numerous “cottage industries” involving wood carvings done by the locals in their very own backyards. Thus, the Church provides a venue for these local artisans to showcase their talents while at the same time earning honest remuneration from the works of their hands.
Visit our St. John’s Gift Shop at the Parish grounds and help support our local artisans!
