Reviewed 28 September 2013

This is a beautiful Anglican church and it is worth visiting. Other than the gentleman who was at a reception desk when we entered and who provided information about the church, and two other visitors, we were the only people in the cathedral. The church has a beautiful wood ceiling and a number of stained glass windows. Photographs are permitted. There is no admission fee, but the gentleman who greeted us when we entered indicated that a free will offering would be gladly accepted, as it was going to take more than $4 million to replace the roof. We contributed to the cause.

We walked along Burrard St. from our hotel towards Canada Place and half way down, came to the Cathedral. We were expecting a large building but it was the size of a small Parish church.
However, once inside we were greeted by a pleasant man seated at a desk, who was ready to give you any information we wanted yet not pushy and left you to approach him simply saying 'Good morning' to those who entered. This wooden church was very well kept and was peaceful with the most beautiful stained glass windows. Although it was a little on the dark side it was not at all gloomy and had a sense of peace. A steady flow of visitors came and went but it was never crowded although we weren't there for a service. Would recommend a visit, you can also purchase a history of it and postcards.

Gregorian chants are performed every Sunday at 9:30. This was such a nice change of pace for us after dinner at Diva at the Met, to walk over to this little church surrounded by modern skyscrapers and listen for awhile to the singers before calling it a night.

Beautiful and quiet cathedral for meditation and contemplation outside of regular service hours as well.
