“I want to get married here”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Beautiful.
I adore the architecture and the history of it. Nothing else like it.
I'm from Waterloo and its boring here. I got some great photos and I decided that I want to get married here sometime.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

Right now it is lit up so beautifully that it caused us to walk up to it and listen to the lovely bells chime at 10 o'clock. We've walked past before but last night it was a work of art with the lighting.

“Large Old Church”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Easter service @ 11am was typical liturgical with sit, kneel, stand and recite. It was a full house with choir and visitors. Nothing impressive about service, just the building.

“Nice building, but a shame how badly the grounds are treated!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

On a self-guided walking tour of downtown Toronto, we passed by St. James Cathedral. The building is indeed beautiful, although it looks like it needs some renovation work. There were signs of significant wear all over the exterior.

One thing we noticed about the cathedral that we thought a completely heinous, shameful practice. Local dog walkers seem to make the cathedral grounds - as carefully manicured and lovely as they are - the focus of their walks, and allow their dogs to deposit their leavings everywhere, and do not clean up after themselves. Just disgusting, and in my opinion, completely disrespectful of this building and its institution. St. James Cathedral, and Toronto's Anglican community, deserves better.

“Architecture for a God”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you are sightseeing, St. James Anglican Cathedral is definitely something to see. It's grandeur and the decorative details are quite spectacular.
