Excellent church opened in 1919 and well looked after. The interior is exquisite and well worth the visit. Just love how they built these structures years ago before technology

Lovely church with high ceilings and stained glass galore! The symmetry walking in is beautiful!! You can see the steeples anywheres in Charlottetown I'm sure!

Beautiful church! If you are in the city go take a picture. The inside is beyond beautiful when the sun shines in the Windows. We have attended weddings there and the pictures taken inside as well as outside on the steps were gorgeous
