St. Andrew's Cathedral, Victoria

St. Andrew's Cathedral, Victoria

St. Andrew's Cathedral is the Roman Catholic cathedral for the diocese of Victoria. Built in the High Victorian Gothic style, St. Andrew's was Victoria's third cathedral to be built. (The first, 1858–1884, is now the Chapel of St. Ann's Academy on Humboldt Street; the second, 1884–1892, was on the site behind the current building now occupied by the St. Andrew's Square office building.)

Construction for the new cathedral began in 1890. At 8:00 am on October 30, 1892, Bishop Lemmens blessed the building before Pontifical High Mass was celebrated at 10:00am. The cathedral has been a National Historic Site of Canada since 1990.
