We have been to Iqaluit before, and have always marvelled at this beautiful church. It really echoes a traditional Inuit structure in very respectful way. Our stays in Iqaluit have been too brief to see the inside so far, but it does lift our hearts...More

There is an English language service and the ministers were very careful to help visitors participate in the service. Coffee after church was in the soup kitchen next door.

I attended as a worshipper on a Sunday morning. At the 9:45 am service (English)...great musicians (!) and beautiful singing of classic hymns from the 1970's era. A couple of friendly congregational women and the clergy couple engaged me. It was an easy to follow...More

This is a can't miss... a unique building rebuilt after the 2005 fire. Typical tourist stops are a must, but this is a must-must-must place to go. Many are the services are in Inuktitut so drop in for the experience too!!

It can be tricky getting inside if your not in town on a Sunday, but you can stop by the church office next down and ask to see inside. Donations always appreciated.

The original one was burned down years ago. The rebuild is amazing. The art and carvings are amazing.

Built like an Igloo. Even if I am not of the that faith, I attended Easter Sunday services there and enjoyed the friendship and exchanges of good wished by most of the attendees.

The interior is remarkable and the cross made of narwhal tusk is worth viewing. Overall a lovely cathedral and certainly worth a visit.

"Take a picture, my friend," as my native friend would say. The "igloo church" is simply an unusual architecture. While you are at it, take a wide shot that includes the adjacent elementary school and the high school behind it. They are all remarkable for...More
