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.

  • Lovely neo-Gothic building with a beautiful façade and Windows, built in just three years in the year 1854 in Amsterdam in 1985 year passed to Syrian conformists. I know the Coptic Orthodox Church in Ethiopia, and with the Syrians have not experienced the Church I liked Syrian Church turns out to exist since 5 century roots go with Saints Peter and Paul, who first preached in Syria and inside of me still waiting for discovery that there is Surinamese Roman Catholics who serve here. This is a mix of religions in the same building
