St. Saviour’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral in Nelson continues to build on the success of its summer public tours by again throwing open its doors.
St. Saviour’s (located at the corner of Silica and Ward Streets), is a bylaw designated heritage church built in 1898 and rebuilt in 1929, after a disastrous fire.
In addition to carved wood architectural highlights, the church contains 16 memorial stained glass windows as well as numerous memorial plaques.
The stained glass windows are unique and collectively the best example of church stained glass in the Kootenays.
A 32-page full colour guidebook to these stained glass windows is offered for sale. Also open for view is the recent expansion which has enabled the church to greater serve its parishioners and the wider community.
The church is open for tours from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday to Saturday inclusive, commencing July 2 and continuing during the months of July and August. Volunteer tour guides will be in attendance to answer questions and the tours are free, though donations are gratefully accepted.
The church is also open Sundays for regular service at 10:30 a.m.
