  • I am not a person overly interested in churches however this church has the best wood internal roof I have seen, and I would recommend if in Apia attend and look at this structure.

  • Although there are many churches in Samoa, this cathedral stands out. It’s beautiful inside and outside. It’s very interesting to see how western culture and native culture have been incorporated to spread the word of the lord. The interior was absolutely mind blowing. It’s different from the churches you would see elsewhere in the world.
  • A welcome refuge from the weather on a very rainy day in Apia. The church is impressive on the outside and even more so on the inside. The wood work and stained glass windows are beautiful, and quite new too. It was very quiet and peaceful when we were there, and definitely worth a visit. The tiles outside were very slippery.
  • The most beautiful church in Samoa if not the Pacific. Must visit when you are in Apia. They have both the Samoan and English masses. Don't forget to visit the Religion Shop next door.
  • Beautifully designed new Cathedral for the community of Samoa. Gorgeous parquetry and marble used and keeps the building cool even on the hottest day.
  • Most impressive building in Apia. It is a visit worth even if you are not interested in churches. Just next to the center. Always open during the day for visits!
