Jeremy Clarke SJ, Catholic Shanghai: A Historical, Practical and Reflective Guide

This guide is for those who want to experience the richness and vitality of the Chinese Catholic Church in Shanghai, a city that is rampantly commercial and surprisingly spiritual.

The author gives clear directions on how to get to each of the sites presented here, explains something of its history and significance, and provides information on such practical items as the character of the area in which the site is located, nearby landmarks and public parks, and pointer about etiquette or local customs.

Given that many of the locations are active places of worship, material is also provided that may be helpful for quiet reflection or prayer.

In addition, as a general background to understanding and visiting specific churches and religious sites, there is an overview of the life and liturgical practices of the Catholic Church in Shanghai. In short, for readers who might range from the general public to the interested scholar, this is a pilgrimage guide to Catholic Shanghai.
