The Mingdong Catholic Church is near the Mingdong shopping mall. It is very close to it. It is very special that there is such a solemn and quiet church standing in the downtown area. If you have visited various cathedrals in Europe, and then look at the Mingdong Catholic Church, it may feel a little insipid, not grand enough, not grand enough, not skillful enough. But every building has its unique charm and respect. The Mingdong Catholic Church is a Gothic building, and red bricks add a retro-nostalgic style. Looking up, the sunshine just passed through its green apex and sprinkled to the earth. At this moment, it seems to feel its solemnity and grandeur. The church can be visited or photographed free of charge, but don't disturb those who are worshipping to show respect. When you can go shopping in Mingdong, you can feel such a tranquility, especially beautiful.
Every day when I go to or come back to Mingdong, I have to pray here. When I come here, I always feel a special sense of calmness. I spend ten minutes throughout the day reflecting on the good people and good things that I meet every day under thanksgiving. I also have to look back and think about the things that I am sorry for. God will bless me.
Free visits, concise Gothic architecture, solemn atmosphere, at the end of a commercial street like Mingdong, there is a sudden and bright visual impact. When I go there, it's snowing. It feels good. There are people getting married. Many irrelevant people are watching the excitement. I am not ashamed to disturb such a solemn wedding ceremony and rush out. I turn back to see the statue of Notre Dame and the underground church. It's a good place for Mingdong shopping to adjust their body and mind
As a Christian, the local church must go back and forth. Please be quiet. Mass, prayer, or church activities will be held at different times of the day. If you are interested, you can go to the church. As a respect, please don't wear short skirts, shorts and vest. Anyway, I like church very much. Thank you.
In fact, the location is very easy to find. You can see it from Mingdong Street all the way east. It's on the south side of the road. It is said to be the earliest Catholic Church in Korea, and also the earliest brick church in Korea, Gothic architecture. It was a sunny day, and the light was shining through the cross on the top of the bell tower. The underground church was under the main altar of the cathedral. Since 1900, the remains of the martyrs in the period of persecution in Binshen have been preserved. Mass and prayers will be held at 10 a.m. I recommend you to come and have a look while you are shopping.
You can feel the charm of the building for free. The building is very beautiful. Perhaps the ten thousand characters on the skirt were misunderstood to be brought here by enthusiastic Koreans in search of the church gods and horses. This is probably the only place in Mingdong where people are not so crowded.
