Experience the cathedral and enjoy the interior while keeping in mind the craftsmanship of the work along with considering the years it was constructed and the tools that were available at the time of construction.

Attended a service at the Cathedral celebrating the 175 years of the Archdiocese of Toronto. The Cathedral looks impressive with its newly restored stained glass images. The basement is nicely done with the cript of the first archbishop of Toronto Micheal Power.

for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
