St. Paul's Cathedral
The Cathedral church of Saint Paul is a venerable, historic church at the heart of downtown London. It is London’s oldest church and one of the most recognizable historic landmarks in the community, a city-designated heritage building.
The land on which the Cathedral stands is vested in the Diocese of Huron. Anglicans have worshipped on the site since 1832. Much of the present Cathedral was built in 1845, following a fire in the original structure.
The Cathedral bells have rung over the city to mark important events, calling citizens’ attention and gathering them together as a community on both religious and civic occasions. Records of significant tolls are scrawled on the walls within the bell tower.
By stepping through the doors of St. Paul’s, you are entering an important part of Huron’s history.
