Beautiful architecture

Whether attending a service here or not, it is a very well worth while visit to admire the intricate detail both inside and out

On our visit, the Cathedral was open, and such a gorgeous place to visit!
Mar 2020
It's wonderful, spiritual place, even for visitors. The fact that it was open was a marvel, but we don't know if it will continue to be with the COVID-19 restrictions. The light inside and architecture are beautiful. If you are in downtown Toronto and if this gorgeous place remains open, it should be a must-see!

Lovely and calm. Truly welcoming people!
May 2019
This cathedral is small and rather cosy. Even I was quite surprised at the sweet welcome from the congregation, and the beautiful setting. It is surrounded with art and spirituality, and set in a wonderful garden and exciting neighborhood. My hotel was just across the square, so I stopped in often, and came to services as well.

Pretty good

Not in the top ranks of cathedrals but still worthy of note. We enjoyed the great stained glass windows especially behind the altar: see the pic.

A REAL DELIGHT
Oct 2019
Apparently the oldest Anglican church in the city. My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting when having an extended stop over in Toronto. Both the outside and inside are spectacular. The wonderful stained glass windows being a real delight. Our visit to this atmospheric church was extremely interesting and well received.

Breathtaking!

We have traveled the world and seen many cathedrals and I have to say, St James Anglican Cathedral is at the top of my list. It is a beautiful looking structure and the folks are amazing. If you visit you must take a walk and stop in.

Wonderful old church and warm community
Feb 2019
This is the seat of the Anglican Church in Canada and has played a huge part in the history of Toronto. Currently it is the home of a wonderful clergy and congregation that reaches out to the community to provide service and culture and social support.
The first time I was here was for a memorial service for a friend who received the full honours of its clergy for whom she had performed hours of volunteer support. The atmosphere was peaceful and created by light streaming through the beautiful stained glass windows. An adjacent church hall serves as a comfortable location for receptions following services.

I love to visit old churches, and since St James was within walking distance,... A beautiful Cathedral, awe inspiring in architecture and detail. I was also most inspired by their mission to serve others in their community. God bless.

Quick Visit

Beautiful exterior and went in for a quick peak. Interesting the pews in the church had closed little doors. I've never seen that. Would be gorgeous for a wedding.
