This church is most impressive. It has beautiful stained glass windows. There is a gilded balcony around the sides & the roof is deep blue covered with golden stars

“Old Money Knew How to Do it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

This isn't Montreal (or Paris), but this Notre Dame is distinctive in its own right. From the twin tin spires to the ornate chancel and the marvelous woodwork and color, you will not be disappointed.

“Not to be missed.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Dropped in to take a look and was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the interior. The intricate carvings, stained glass windows and attention to detail are fabulous. It reminded so much of the many old churches I have visitd in Europe. Take the time to go in and enjoy the serenity of it all. You definitely will not be disappointed.

“Beautiful! Bring your camera!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A must see, inside and out, even if you are not religious. Take some time to see this beauty! It's a few minutes drive away from Parliament but it's within walking distance also if you wanna go for a stroll.
