Overview

The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is the first Anglican cathedral to be built outside the British Isles. Built between 1800 and 1804, the cathedral introduced to Canada the British Palladian style of architecture. While it was under construction, King George III commissioned the Royal Goldsmiths, Rundell and Bridge, to create an exceptional 10-piece silver Communion Service for the new Cathedral. The altar candlesticks, chalices and other elements are richly adorned, bearing the Arms of the King and of the Diocese of Quebec. This Communion Service is one of the finest examples of Georgian silver ever made. Truly a royal gift! Showcased in a permenent exhibit inside the Cathedral since 2014, it was awarded with the "Prize for Excellence" by the Québec Religious Heritage Council in November 2015. The Cathedral's bells date from 1830 and are the oldest change-ringing bells in Canada. They were made by the Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, England, the same foundry that cast Big Ben, the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, and the great bell "Jean-Baptiste" of Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal. Nestled in the heart of Old Quebec, is the mother church of the Diocese of Quebec and has two parishes of Quebec Parish and the Parish of All Saints .

It was exciting to be at the cathedral of the Holy Trinity on the feast of the most Holy Trinity. When we visited there was a little market outside on the cathedral grounds which was quite interesting. Also enjoyed the park and fountain out front.

We visited here for about 45 minutes. It has quite a lot of history and is almost as much of a museum as it is a church. It is not nearly as ornate as the Basicila but it is lovely.

Wandered in this Cathedral and were surprised to see the items on display like a mini museum! A treat to experience!

Great for a short, and respectful, visit and the interior is quite magnificent. The exterior doesn't portray what you see inside and it is worth a short visit. Beautiful ceiling.

What a lovely cathedral! It's the size of a big English church and beautifully kept. The stained glass windows were not high up so easy to look at, the pews were comfortable and had the old fashioned doors closing you in. If you want to...More

A very small church but very beautiful and interesting. It worth the visit and it’s just next to the Place de Armes.

This first Anglican Cathedral in Quebec is lovely and simply oozes history. I was disappointed to find nobody about who could answer questions or whom I could ask about getting upstairs for a look. However, there was a lot to keep me occupied for the...More

We just went in, while walking around, and it's definitely worth it to stop in. Just a very pretty church with a nice courtyard in front.

This church is a quick stop on a tour of the city, reflecting the English history of Quebec City. The church building is modeled after St. Martin's in the Fields, London.
