The Cathedral Church of All Saints, an Anglican church, was constructed from 1907-1910. An American, Ralph Cram, was chosen to design the stone Gothic Revival structure, which was built by a Halifax firm noted for its experience in building stone structures. The church is referred to as a "Cathedral", signifying that it serves as the "mother" church of the Anglican Diocese of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The interior of the Cathedral features many stained glass windows, each of which is detailed on the Cathedral's website. The largest, the east Great Window, is a memorial to the men and women from the diocese who died in service to Canada during World War I. While several churches were destroyed in the Halifax Explosion in 1917, the Cathedral suffered less damage than most. However, a 1945 explosion at the Naval Ammunition Magazine at nearby Bedford caused extensive damage to the Great Window and led to closing of the sanctuary for almost the next ten years. Located just two blocks from the eastern side of the Public Gardens, All Saints is easy to incorporate into a walking tour of the Citadel, Public Gardens and the church. Worth a visit! Recommended…

Very nice church located in downtown Halifax, very close to the Public Gardens. The church is well maintained. The church is a bit on the small side. We attended a Christmas Eve service, which was very nice.

It is hard to miss the very 'in your face' purple sign of the Cathedral Church of all Saints in Halifax. The lettering on it is also a bit 'loud'.

Located close to the Victoria Gardens, this is another pretty church to add to the list in the Halifax downtown area. Worth a quick visit as you explore the city.
