All Saints' Anglican Cathedral, Edmonton

All Saint's Anglican Cathedral is the cathedral serving the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, which covers central Alberta. It serves as the episcopal seat of the Bishop of Edmonton, currently the Right Reverend Jane Alexander.

The Parish of All Saints' was founded in 1875 by the Reverend Canon William Newton, the first known Anglican missionary to the Edmonton area. The parish first meet in a log cabin at the corner of what is now Jasper Avenue and 121 Street. The present building was completed in 1956, after tearing down the structure built in 1921, and was finally given the permanent status of cathedral. The parish hall to the north, which predated the current Cathedral, was demolished in 1973 with Cathedral Close, with the senior's complex and synod office building eventually being built in its place.
