St. Dunstan's Basilica Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful serene atmosphere. Open until 5 pm weekdays. Sunday mass at 10am and 5pm. Its a history place . If you are stressed and need some calm environment go here. It has an adoration chapel on the side which is also open with a security code.
Wonderful cathedral - probably the best in the Maritimes, certainly the grandest. It is something that must be seen to be truly appreciated, and if you are in the area don't think about passing it by. One thing to be cautious of is the fact that it gets very busy in the summer months. Parking is rare to find, so maybe plan ahead.
A beautiful cathedral, inside and out. Admission was free but donations were accepted. They ask that you dress respectfully and not take pictures while services are in session (both very reasonable requests). You can walk right up to the front and see the sculptures and everything up close. Very close to a number of other downtown attractions - worth a visit.
This was great soon as I asked jesus to forgive me for all badness he said notta prob dan. Polished my halo and off I went!!!
A short walk from the port This Basilica stand out, gracefully and beautifully in the old town of Charlottetown! I truly enjoyed the stain glass panels and the various alters! Don’t miss the carved in wood last supper under the main alter!
