In a world that faces great challenges and difficulties, we commit ourselves to sharing that world, those challenges, and our hopes with people of other Christian traditions and people of other faiths.

We are called to be a place of hope in God’s world: where God is worshipped with heart and mind, hands and voices; where Christ’s peace and justice are sought; where we love and care for one another, and where strangers can become friends.

We love our neighbours and in doing so, love God through

  • Attentive nurturing of common life –creating a community of faith where people know and care for one another, embracing the diversity of our backgrounds and our gifts

  • Abundant hospitality – that welcomes, invites and connects

  • Living liturgy – that resonates and connects people in the experience of holy worship

  • Excellence in music and song in liturgy and performance

  • Enriched opportunities for intelligent inquiry and dialogue – offering challenging, enjoyable and diverse opportunities to explore and learn and deepen our faith

  • Compassionate service, advocacy and justice-building in our community and beyond

  • Presence as a holy and spiritual place and as a venue for artistic expression in the centre of Halifax

  • Communication of our ministry to our communities, inviting collaboration

In pursuing our vision, we are open to the leading of the Holy Spirit at work in our congregation, our neighbourhood, and our world.

Approved by Congregational Council - January 22, 2020


The Cathedral Church, the seat of the Bishop and mother church for all Anglicans in the diocese, is also the spiritual home for approximately 330 families. Located in downtown Halifax amid hospitals and universities, it attracts an inclusive, diverse, welcoming congregation who embrace a variety of liturgical styles and traditions.

Congregational Council is the legal entity for the cathedral congregation.  This group of 16 members includes appointed and elected representatives and synod delegates who meet monthly to manage the affairs of the church on behalf of the congregation. The Dean’s Warden, the Cathedral Warden and the Chair of Congregational Council are the principal officers. The structure of the sub-committees reflects the Vision of the Cathedral.

Friends of the Cathedral: Supporting the Cathedral Church of All Saints
The Friends of the Cathedral is a Foundation to support the cathedral that is currently in a conceptual phase at the Cathedral Church of All Saints, Halifax, NS. The plan is to have this entity assume, as a major part of its focus, the mandate of the former Cathedral League, an Anglican Church Women group, with diocesan roots, whose mandate it was to beautify the Cathedral.
