Designed in the neoclassic Palladian style, the Cathedral was modeled after the famous church of St. Martin-in-the-fields in Trafalgar Square, London. King George III paid for the construction of the Cathedral and provided a folio Bible, communion silverware and large prayer books to be used for worship. The completed building was consecrated on August 28, 1804 and has served as the focus of Anglican life and worship in the Diocese of Quebec ever since.Today the Cathedral is home to a strong community of Anglican and Lutheran Christians, with two main Sunday services, one in French (Tous les Saints) and the other in English (Parish of Quebec). Worship services are contemporary in language and style but continue in the great cathedral tradition with a particular focus on choral music. We have a lively program for parish children with a friendly Sunday School. Our commitment to help out in our community and beyond includes a refugee sponsorship program, The Noella Project; and ministry to seafarers stopping over in the Port of Quebec.
