Work begins on Nelson church addition

Construction is underway on an addition to St. Saviour's Pro-Cathedral following a groundbreaking ceremony last week.



Work is underway on an addition to St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral following a groundbreaking ceremony last week that included Rev. Thomas Leadbeater. Now retired, Leadbeater was also there in 1954 when work began on an addition to the church’s Memorial Hall.

The church recently sold the hall and put the proceeds towards exterior upgrades on the church, including cleaning of the stonework and painting of the exterior trim and stucco. The 820 square foot single-storey addition on the building’s east side will have a kitchen, washrooms, and storage space.

The church was built in 1898 and rebuilt in 1929 following a fire.
