Cathedral of the Good Shepherd

Built in 1847, the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd in the civic district is the oldest Catholic church in Singapore and the seat of the Archbishop of Singapore.

As you can see, repair work is in progress and a major restoration is needed to repair the large cracks and other signs of wear and tear. The church is needful of raising funds as restoration is more costly than tearing down the building and rebuilding.

You can just make out the cross on top of the steeple. Its architecture is described as Renaissance style. The catheral's pipe organ is the oldest such organ in Singapore and still functioning, being installed in 1912.

Great to see you ~Irene
