An architectural jewel, the cathedral is one of the finest examples of perpendicular gothic style in Canada. To appreciate the cathedral’s beauty, one only has to see its great east window commemorating the sacrifice of the men and women of the Diocese who gave their lives in World War I or the Bicentenary window marking the 200th anniversary of the arrival of our first bishop, Charles Inglis.

Notable features include the intricate wood carvings of Robert “mousie” Thompson in the sanctuary, the chancel and the signature pulpit. Altogether these carvings took 30 years to complete and are the only example of Thompson’s work in Canada. Equally notable is the cathedral’s 5,000 pipe organ, the second largest in the Maritimes.

While the building is indeed an architectural masterpiece, cost-saving decisions about building materials made during its construction have had long-term implications for its maintenance. The extensive maintenance program undertaken by the cathedral congregation has strengthened the basic structure. In fact, according to a recent engineering report, the building has been deemed sound and considered worthy of continuous restoration and refurbishing.
