Another church that shows the diverse architectural practices of yesterday. This is a stunning cathedral and if you hear of the St. Michael's Choir School performing there, make sure to attend. There is a peculiar warmth in this church and an odd Spiritual presence. It is truly beautiful. Big celebrations, i.e., Christmas, Easter, the church fills up with regular parishoners.

Nice to drop in for a quiet moment away from the hustle and bustle of the street.

St. Michaels is so rich with history , you feel it the moment you enter the giant heavy doors and are greeted by the incredibly long aisle . The Stained Glass is truly art work and a feast for the eyes as well as the various relics and statues . Including bone that is embedded in the altar ! The St> Michaels Choir School sing like its nobody's business and I am sure could rival some of the greatest choirs in Europe .
Whether you are Ctholic or not , you can always appreciate the beauty of this old , but cherished relic of Toronto .

as an attraction but also a place to worship and spend some time with God/ I found it very peaceful and uplifting. I like the statues they have of Saints with relics which are a rarity in Toronto.
