    We always enjoy the architecture of churches. We walked to this church from pier 22 where our cruise ship was docked, then continued on up to the gardens and the citadel.
    The church is worth a visit if you are investigating Halifax.

    We went to the service there. We were very leery to drop in on Sunday, as we are tourists and were concerned that, that would put everyone off. Let me tell you we had nothing to be concerned about. Not only is it a beautiful church, and they have a beautiful service, but the people there are so welcoming and kind!

    This is the global h.q. of one of the most important Buddhist organizations in the west. They offer meditation sittings as well as informal tours. Excellent stop! Highly recommend!

    The Cathedral Church of All Saints, an Anglican church, was constructed from 1907-1910. An American, Ralph Cram, was chosen to design the stone Gothic Revival structure, which was built by a Halifax firm noted for its experience in building stone structures. The church is referred to as a "Cathedral", signifying that it serves as the "mother" church of the Anglican Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

    The interior of the Cathedral features many stained glass windows, each of which is detailed on the Cathedral's website. The largest, the east Great Window, is a memorial to the men and women from the diocese who died in service to Canada during World War I. While several churches were destroyed in the Halifax Explosion in 1917, the Cathedral suffered less damage than most. However, a 1945 explosion at the Naval Ammunition Magazine at nearby Bedford caused extensive damage to the Great Window and led to closing of the sanctuary for almost the next ten years.

    Located just two blocks from the eastern side of the Public Gardens, All Saints is easy to incorporate into a walking tour of the Citadel, Public Gardens and the church.

    Worth a visit! Recommended
