Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk, Amsterdam

4.5
Onze Lieve Vrouwekerk is a Syriac Orthodox church in the centre of Amsterdam. The church is used by Syriac Orthodox community and the Roman Catholic of Opus Dei. Emphasis is placed on the hearing of confessions and of choral liturgy. The building has the Dutch status of a Rijksmonument.
The church was founded in 1854 by the Redemptorist Fathers and was designed by architect Theo Molkenboer. In 1985 the Redemptorists left the church due to the lack of redemptorist priests. The church was acquired by the Syriac Orthodox Church in the Netherlands and the parish was renamed to Moeder Godskerk (Church of the Mother of God). However, the church never closed its doors for the Roman and Surinam Catholic believers.

  • Absolutely AWSOME. The choir sings beautifully and the organ sounds amazing. English mass Sundays at 18:00
  • It just amazing on the outside, easy to walk there and the street has a nice view. Sadly it was closed, only opens from 5 to 6 apparently so that is a big disappointment, but i guess it must obe for safety.
