St. John’s Catholic Church (Cantonement)

This church and parish was one of the earlisest churches started in Yangon city. Actually in Yangon city itself this is the first place that the Missionaries started their mission. It was first started by Oblate of Turin in 1857 till 1860. From 1860 till 1982 the Foreign Missions of Paris (MEP) worked in this parish.

From 1982 onward this parish was run by the local diocesan priests. The 125th anniversary of the Church was celebrated in 1982. On that occasion a tablet was reected in grateful remembrance by the parishioners.
