Korean Catholics Building Church in Apex

Feb 16, 2011

Korean Catholics in the Triangle will soon have a new place to worship.

For years, Korean Catholics like Whansu Kang have been gathering at the St. Michael’s church in Cary. That should change this fall when the first phase of the Saint Ha-Sang Paul Jung Catholic Church is expected to be completed. It will give members of the Korean Catholic community their own space. Kang says the new space will give Korean students and visitors to the Triangle a place to turn to:

 "We like to keep our Korean tradition in the church and hopefully children growing up continue to keep the tradition and help serve for these visitors." 

The church will be located in Apex. It’ll be the second Korean Church in the Raleigh Diocese, joining the St. Andrew Kim parish in Fayetteville.
