Catholicism

The Longdong Catholic Church includes the Sabbath Building. The Sabbath Building is part of the graveyard of the Catholic Diocese of Guangzhou, which was originally located in downtown Taojinkeng and was occupied during the Cultural Revolution period.

Subsequently, in 1985, Guangzhou Municipality put into effect their policy on religion and moved the graveyard to the Phoenix Mountain in Yushatan Town, Longdong, Tianhe District. The new graveyard includes the Sabbath Building (where deposit remains of the followers are located and is also called the Junior Sacred Hill), and the St. Lucy Church. Phase I of the new Project for the Sabbath Building, was completed in June 1994, with more than 300 brethren from Guangzhou and Hong Kong attending the Inauguration Ceremony upon its completion.
