Mary Queen of the World Cathedral as it was originally named and is still called by the english community who built it is a beautiful cathedral and a nice refuge from the downtown hustle and bustle

My wife and visited this church in January of 2013. We were first intrigued and somewhat confused by the exterior design of the church. Because the church is in a newer part of the city, the exterior seems to be designed like any other government building. We drove by it twice without realizing it was a church.

The church is open to the public, with no entrance fee. There are several places throughout the church to donate money, each labeled with the purpose of the money collected at that location.

The church is beautifully decorated and much more modern than other churches that we have visited. It is a definite contrast of the old gothic design. This is a definite must see.

This church was stunning, inside and out. The altar and the detail work in the interior was simply beautiful!

Of course you don't go to a church for taking pictures, but outside views are so beautiful that you cannot resist. You can take really beautiful pictures in any season, during day or night. Many creative photos are possible mixing the trees (in green/Summer) red and yellow (Autumn) or with no leaves at all (Winter) or with "the Pencil" (Montreal tallest building) in the background.

What a lovely elegant church this is! What more can I say? We sat and rested our bodies and minds. There is no entrance fee, like in some churches.
