Churches

The Catholic Church in Siem Reap is one of the 26 communities under the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang. It is composed of 5 parishes and 8 learning centers. The main parish is St. John the Apostle Catholic Church, which is located within the heart of Siem Reap’s commercial center, while the rest are in small neighboring towns and floating villages (the farthest of which is a 2-hour pump boat ride from the mainland).

Sharing in the apostolic prefecture’s priority to restore life after the war in Cambodia and become witnesses of God’s love, mercy and compassion, the Catholic Church in Siem Reap designed its activities and programs to follow suit.  Individual and group pilgrims may click on each of the links to each church for more information:
