“Church of the nations”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I grew up in Abu Dhabi and studied at St. Joseph's School. So this was my parish for a long time. While the church may not be extraordinary, it is still the gathering place of a huge number of Catholics in the emirate of Abu Dhabi. Currently almost all masses are crowded but as they are building new churches, I'm sure this issue will be resolved. With a resonance of the past century, this is a pleasant church with people of all nationalities attending mass. Not a must, but if you are interested in places of worship, yes do visit.

“I try and go everyday”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Its a place a worship for Catholics. Plenty of parking all around. Sundays are pretty crowded. Weekdays are peaceful.
You can catch a bus there as well, although you will have to walk for 5 mins to reach the church as the bus drops you across the road.

“Local Catholic Church”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This local Catholic Church is very sparten in decor and comfort but rich in faith and congregation. Masses are offered in several languages, with most services on Friday and Sunday.
