With more than 30 parishes, and various Catholic organizations across the island, the Catholic Church has undoubtedly one of the most cohesive presences in Singapore. This has been, in no small part, due to ‘businessmen’ like Father Jean-Marie Beurel who had a good nose for bargains and bought a great deal of land, or the generosity of Catholic benefactors through the years who have donated and bequeathed land and money to the Church.
Because of their beautiful architecture, Catholic buildings of a bygone era remain some of Singapore’s most iconic monuments. Learn more about the history of our Catholic landmarks.
