Overview
More
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 .

The cost of the cathedral was paid for by the crown and George III donated a 10 piece silver communion service which is on display. It is interesting reading the numerous memorials which are on the walls.

As beautiful as it is, I think you will get the most of this place when you are a part of a guided tour. You will get some insight into the history of this magnificent place of worship.

This is a cathedral located on a busy street. There are lots of small shops right outside of its doorstep. We came by and rested for awhile to admire the stain glass on the windows.
