I was glad to visit this church as i am an Anglican and always like to see my church in other cities. This church has a lovely garden, beautiful stained glass windows. You can sit quietly and pray. Underground there is a mall that stretches for a number of blocks, but the mall on the whole is just meh.

Located in the city center this church is just one of many others. The church is not that big but well decorated. Lots of decorated windows and the roof is recorded as well. Behind the altar there's a much bigger decorated window. I liked that the organ is so visible in the back.

First thing which will make you feeling good is the air temperature inside. Despite of the weather outside, inside is around +20. So you will like to sit down. And look around. And think about the life. Doesn't matter if you rush or not. I think this is why churches are built. Good job, Very Reverend, Kennington! Despite of fact... More

We went to church at Christ Church Cathedral on Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m. We thoroughly enjoyed the service and the beauty of the Cathedral. The people were very friendly and welcomed us to the service.

Lovely building with fantastic organ. The excellent choir sing Eucharist and Evensong on Sundays with a varied and interesting music list. Friendly and helpful clergy and staff. Superb location in the centre of Montreal with shops, restaurants, bars, concert halls and theatres all within walking distance. A must when visiting the city.

Small and simple, but wonderfully beautiful. If you are on St. Catherine's shopping walk a little further down the street and visit this church

I've been to churches and cathedrals all over the world and this is a very pretty example. It doesn't make me think cathedral but it is very nice. I would recommend the Notre Dame basilica over this if you are short on time when visiting montreal. Like Notre Dame, it is has a very warm, unintimidating interior.

Christ church Anglican Cathedral is right on the longest commercial shopping street in Canada and connected to Montreal's weather proof city which is the largest in the world. The church was added after the weather proof city and metro system were already built. Put up on pillars while the underground passage was being built it was put back to its... More
