Nelson’s St. Saviour’s Cathedral is again opening its doors to summer tours.

St. Saviour’s welcomes back its summer tours in Nelson

St. Saviour’s Anglican Church continues to build on the success of its summer public tours by again throwing open its doors.

St. Saviour’s Anglican Church continues to build on the success of its summer public tours by again throwing open its doors.

The church — located at the corner of Silica and Ward Streets — will be open during the months of July and August with volunteer tour guides in attendance to answer questions. Alternately, visitors can pick up an informational pamphlet for a self guided tour or just enjoy a quiet contemplative time.

St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral 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 Kootenay and on par with those in cathedrals in Vancouver and Victoria.

Concurrent with this year’s tours, St. Saviour’s will be offering for sale a 32-page full colour guidebook to these stained glass windows. Architectural plans for the imminent expansion of the church will also be on display.

The church is open for tours, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday to Saturday, commencing July 3 and continuing during the months of July and August.

Tours are offered for free, though donations are accepted and books detailing the church’s history are available.

The church is also open Sundays for regular service and children’s program at 10:30 a.m.
