Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria

#7 of 18 in Historic Sites in Victoria
Church Tourist Spot
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 lovely, welcoming, cathedral in the heart of the downtown core. Located on Burdett (across from the YM/YWCA). Wheelchair accessible.
  • Doroteo Dorango refers to 'their' (presumably the Anglican) addicted and poor laying their bodies on the ground ,, across the street from this Anglican Cathedral. Not sure who ' their' are ? One of those 'addicted and poor' is a family member of ours, and has accessed every outreach and housing and hospitalization over 30 plus years in the homeless / addicted 'lifestyle'? Indeed he had an awesome tent, electricity, a fridge, a regular bed , and a pretty sweet set up for a "homeless person" and LOVED living there, and 24 hour police protection to boot. Very few (if any of those folk ) were sleeping on the ground. Our family member came to live in Tent City certainly not for any lack of caring (or trying ) ( or extending the Olive Branch ) from OUR extended family who is Anglican, by the way, straight out from England ! We even have a Reverend in our parentage , yes a proper one, with the dog collar and everything..... In any case, Judge not Lest Ye Be be Judged.... Even a Cathedral ! Thankfully those self same Addicted and Poor that so offended you, are now warm and fed, in hotel housing in downtown Victoria with 24 hour staff . A harm reduction program in house, and a safe injection site, in a cosy building just a few blocks over. Bed bugs NOT included.! Thus, the addicted and poor are no longer offending to your touristic/ voyeuristic eyeballs as you tour the attractions of our beautiful city. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
  • Visitors are welcome. It's a great place for either Christian or tourists.
  • 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
  • Beautiful heritage building and Victoria Landmark. A fine example of Gothic architecture. Open to the public.
