  • Beautiful serene atmosphere. Open until 5 pm weekdays. Sunday mass at 10am and 5pm. Its a history place . If you are stressed and need some calm environment go here. It has an adoration chapel on the side which is also open with a security code.
  • Wonderful cathedral - probably the best in the Maritimes, certainly the grandest. It is something that must be seen to be truly appreciated, and if you are in the area don't think about passing it by. One thing to be cautious of is the fact that it gets very busy in the summer months. Parking is rare to find, so maybe plan ahead.
