It's better to be lonely than against one's will. It's better to regret than to watch a horse in front of a horse barn or a boat in a boat in a boat. It's a proverb in Fuzhou. How many people remember it and how many people know it. The former refers to the hot racetrack in Fuzhou for restoring bus stop names, while the latter refers to Pan Chuan Pu in Cangshan, the largest Catholic Church in the province. Pan-boat Pu Heavenly Church is sitting in the South and north of China, facing the Minjiang River with great momentum. It used to be one of the starting points of China's maritime silk road. From here, Chinese silk, porcelain and black tea were transported to Europe and became Royal tribute. Since Fuzhou was designated as one of the five trading ports more than one hundred years ago, Panchuanpu formed the largest tea terminal in China in the Qing Dynasty, and achieved a prosperous scene of Fuzhou jasmine tea going to the world. It is the witness of the ups and downs of Fuzhou tea market and the boom of tea export. Years go by and seasons run by. The prosperity of that year has long disappeared. The only history left is this famous Pan-boat Pu Heavenly Paradise. Over the years, it has stood on the river and remained the same as me. Panchuanpu Catholic Church, which was built in 1864, was rebuilt in 22 years of the Republic of China (1933). In the past, the clock tower was renowned as the largest Catholic Church in Fujian Province and Fuzhou City. The Gothic architecture of the main hall is romantic and aesthetic, which is shocking. The wedding ceremony was held in this church on Saturday morning because the couple of newly-married friends were believers. Into the church, the church is spacious, brightly lit, with Bible in the seat drawer and 11 European-style cement pillars about 1 metre in diameter standing side by side. The roof of the church is arched and decorated with stars. There are five altars, big and small. The central altar is dedicated to the Lord of the church, the Virgin Mary of Rose. Four small altars beside it are dedicated to Joseph, the adopted father of Jesus, the Virgin Mary and the Virgin Deland from east to west. The lighting windows on the walls are inlaid with multicoloured glass, and the three sets of lighting glasses on the side of the small altar on the left and right sides each carve a coloured image of the church saints. The second floor of the church is a 20-metre-long and 6-metre-wide chanting platform, opposite the grand altar. This should be one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen in China, standing quietly in the busy city, singing gracefully in the choir, echoing in the beautiful palace, making people's soul quiet for a moment. Pan Boat Pu Catholic Church is always the most beautiful scenery along the Nanjiang River in Fuzhou. Especially when the river breeze is blowing in the clear sky, there is a kind of comfortable beauty overlooking the church.

Pan-boat Pu Heavenly Church is sitting in the South and north of China, facing the Minjiang River with great momentum. It used to be one of the starting points of China's maritime silk road. From here, Chinese silk, porcelain and black tea were transported to Europe and became Royal tribute. It was a Fuzhou proverb at that time. The church lobby is a Gothic cross-shaped building with a 3-meter-high cross on the top of the bell tower. The repaired church keeps the original church to the maximum extent. The crystal chandeliers on the roof are customized from abroad according to the original shape, and a large number of murals are in the original position. Eleven European-style columns stand side by side in the church. Each column of the vault radiates four arched square timbers, intersecting with stars at the vault. On both sides and the upper windows of the altar, there are eight coloured icons painted in three glass rooms at the front. Now Pan Boat Pu Catholic Church has Mass at 6 a.m. every day, Bible class every Tuesday evening, Eucharist pilgrimage every Thursday evening, Mudao class every Friday evening, pre-marital counseling class every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, double holidays every week, and holiday evangelism group also receives visits.
When I first got to the front door, I was too holy to enter. Around the back to see a lot of people in the leisure and entertainment, and then around the main door into. The Gothic style building is very beautiful. There are new people taking wedding photos outside the main building. The building is open only on weekends. When I entered, I was shocked by the sacredness and beauty. The missionaries were charitable and gentle. They patiently told stories about Jesus and gave me a Bible. Although I don't believe in religion, I think that existence is reasonable. I would like to know more about such a religion which spreads goodness and beauty.
It's a coincidence that I was going to the old house. It's beautiful here. The church is quiet and sacred.~
Fuzhou is a well-known Catholic church, located near Chaoyang Road in Cangshan, in front of Minjiang River. The building of the church is still very special. The square in front of the church is large and flat. Usually there are residents playing ball there. Many wedding photography companies take wedding dresses. A Catholic church with a long history is also open. In 2004, there was a break to change one direction or the other. It's worth visiting!
I walked past the Gaohu Hotel. Look close on the map, actually it takes a long time to walk past. First, from Daping Road to the west, I want to plug in from the alley, but once around, I go to Daping Road. Later, he went down the road honestly. The church was clean and quiet, and new people came to take pictures.
We went to play together in groups. After the bus got off, it was not far away. The church area was very large and the architectural style was beautiful. It was European style. There were many girls taking pictures there. It was a good background picture! __________ Suitable for literary and artistic models!
