Although it was not open for tours, we did go in before the Sunday service. The minister and a lady who worked there showed us around, including the "ghost" photo in the museum, pointed out the different parts of the architecture, and the stained glass the survived the great fire! They were, like most Newfoundlanders, very friendly!

I was married in this Cathedral over 30 years ago and my son wanted to have a look inside on our last visit to St. John's. The stained glass windows are beautiful and all tell a story, the organ is very impressive, and there is a little museum showing the history of the building. In the summer there have been afternoon tea service offered in the Crypt Room which my mother and I have really enjoyed. This is a lovely building and I highly recommend a visit.

A short walk up the hill from the harbor. Beautiful construction and stained glass windows. Worth the visit.

Inside and out this cathedral is quite a fine example of what you find in many Anglican churches, but on a grand scale. The guides and information they provide is well stated within the context of historical and religious references. One of four churches e visited in this Ecclesiastical District. Maps provided where to find these churches.

I visited yesterday morning whilst killing some time in St John's and I was very impressed. Staff on hand were knowledgeable and the views stunning. If you have even just 15 minutes available I would have a look.

I visit churches to hear the pipe organ. I got to hear this one for a little while when there was no mass. It was a very special experience. The architecture is awesome.

I was excited to see the churches in St. Johns but spend various attempts over three days trying get into the church. Each time we went the doors were locked and we were told to come back later. I haven't encountered a church in Canada or Europe that locked its doors during the day. It felt unwelcoming and I've never felt like that at a church before. Very disappointed.

This tour is absolutely amazing!!! The church is beyond beautiful, and the young man, Liam, who helped us look around, is a blessing for the church to have! He even played the organ for us! Such an articulate and knowledgeable young man!!! We loved it!

We thought we'd wander in and enjoy this building for a bit and ended up with a thoroughly mind-blowing tour by the young man on his way studying the organ at Memorial. The history of the imagery, structure, organ and artifacts were all enthusiastically and thoroughly presented, and he left us wowed by the cathedral and the community that has invested so much in it's preservation. It was beautiful inside and out. Thank you very much, and kudos to the docent who looked after us so well!
