Church is beautiful, the English service was lovely. An organist, a cellist and a single awesome vocalist produce accompanies one of the best church experience I've had. Highly recommended.

In Amsterdam is such a big variety of churches. This one on the Singel is often closed when I pass by. But this time, we were lucky! The architecture is beautiful inside. Next time I’ll check the schedules on their website.

Agree with previous reviews, the music at 5.15 pm Saturday English Mass is superb. I’m lucky enough to visit Amsterdam on Saturday a few times, and have joined the Mass here many times. And had been wondering about the cantor, who sings beautifully, and plays...More

Awesome interior, old fashioned wooden benches, enormous stained glass windows providing light, many artistic depictions and figurines lining the walls, beautiful confessional booths. Too much to see at once. I was happy to catch Mass in progress, great service, very friendly priests, had confession immediately...More

One of the few open Catholic Churches that existed after Calvinism in the heart of the City. It was worth the stop
