St. Saviour’s offers summer tours for fifth year

St. Saviour’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral in Nelson is again throwing open its doors for tours.

St. Saviour’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral in Nelson is again throwing open its doors for its fifth annual tour year.

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 numerous memorial stained glass windows and 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, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday inclusive, throughout July and August. Volunteer tour guides will be in attendance to answer questions. The tours are free, though donations are gratefully accepted. The church is also open Sundays for regular service at 10:30 a.m.
