Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria

(4.5/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
At the very heart of Vancouver, Christ Church Cathedral attracts tourists both for its architecture and its moving religious services. A small stone cathedral dwarfed by the surrounding scyscrapers, the old landmark offers a quiet getaway in the middle of the city. As you enter the cathedral, you'll feel overwhelmed by a sense of peace. Admire the intricate architecture and design of the interior, reflected in the marble walls and pillars. Marvel at the scenes depicted in stained glass as you inspect the cathedral, which also serves as a space for theatrical events and concerts. Plan your visit to Christ Church Cathedral and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Victoria itinerary planner.

  • A fantastic, large and incredibly beautiful temple, empty most of the time, serving no purpose other than a heartless, self serving doctrine so far removed from Christ's teaching that becomes unrecognizable. Their conduct is an offense against the teachings of the carpenter's son and the love and care he displayed for the downtrodden. While at the same time, right across from this temple of greed, human in misery lay their addicted and poor bodies on the cold ground. "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matt. 6:19-21
