Welcome to the Virtual home of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist! While we are delighted that you are joining us here, we hope that you will also come visit us in person. We have the privilege of worshipping and serving in this magnificent Gothic Cathedral – a symbol of our heritage within the worldwide Anglican Communion. I first came to the Cathedral over 30 years ago as a Choral Scholar, but never imagined at that time that I would return as Rector. The many incredible people who volunteer, serve, and minister here in this community, make this a warm and welcoming place to call home. We hope that the Cathedral will be your Spiritual Home as well!


The Very Reverend Roger Whalen

Dean and Rector

The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is a small part of the world-wide Anglican Communion – our larger family of faith! Check this out for more information on the various levels of the Anglican Church.

Our Clergy and Staff are representative of the many people who work to support ministry through our Cathedral Parish.

Established in 1699, the Parish of St. John the Baptist is the oldest Anglican Parish in Canada. The Cathedral building was completed in 1885, but severely damaged in the Great Fire of 1892...

..Whether you are local or travelling from afar, we invite you to come visit our Cathedral. Tours are offered during the Summer season and the Cathedral is open during Office Hours throughout the year.
