About St. Michael's Cathedral, Toronto
Completed in 1848 on financing provided by Irish immigrants, based on a English Gothic Revival design by architect William Thomas, this church represents the country’s largest English-speaking Catholic diocese. The townspeople famously dug the cathedral’s foundation out by hand. The high altar is on the eastern side of the church, facing Jerusalem. The tower spire reaches 79 metres high, making the cathedral appear too large for its neighborhood. Other highlights of the church include its airy interior, the stained glass windows, sculptures of saints along the side aisles, sixteen cast-iron hanging lanterns.

St. Michael's Cathedral, Toronto Reviews
Love coming here for mass when I have a chance. Renovations look like they're just about done and it's very nice inside. There's even a crypt and chapel in the basement that's not quite done that's open to the public.
A beautiful church, Beautiful Palm Sunday Mass. Was in town for a course and had time to stop by the church for Mass. Very big church. I was 5 minutes late to 11am Mass and couldn't find a seat on the main floor - it was packed. I did find a seat (very limited seating remained) upstairs on the balcony. I couldn't see anything because I was off to the side and behind a big pillar but they had large tvs broadcasting the Mass. It was beautiful. Much different than Mass back home in Mississauga at Merciful Redeemer. This Mass at St. Michael's reminded me of the churches and services in Italy. The choir was OUT OF THE WORLD AMAZING! The most beautiful singing voices I ever heard - I believe they said the choir was from St. Andrews highschool or college? Either way they were fantastic. Not a single note was offtune... It was the most beautiful Mass I've been to in Ontario next to the big Cathedral in Hamilton off the highway near McMaster university. Can't wait to go back. God bless.
Was there for a funeral service but the cathedral was absolutely stunning. Priest was kind and thoughtful. In regards to Michelle J I just wanted to say that I attended a funeral service for my friend and the priest was very kind and thoughtful as I am not Catholic and when it was time for communion the priest did invite anyone that was not Catholic to come up for a blessing
I chose to visit this church in place of my regular parish today and attended the 1700 service. The renovations done to the church are beautiful. The homily from the priest was well done...however, I wish I knew before hand that the church had Pre-Vatican II zealots who worked in a volunteer capacity at the church as I had a very nasty and aggressive encounter from a old Philippina woman name Rose, a member of the "Ministers of Welcome" (ironic) who physically blocked me from returning to my seat because "she did not see me place the communion bread in my mouth". I spent a few minutes (felt like a few hours) in disbelief as she attempted to block my path to my seat. Long story short, I left thinking about how many people get turned off from engaging in spiritual practices/religion because of the 'Rose's' in the world who parade religiosity instead of true Spiritual Grace, Christians are called to exhibit. If it wasn't for my strong socialization and belief in Christian values, I would have questioned my decision to return back to a Roman Catholic Church today. If you are a progressive young Catholic living in Toronto, who want's a place to worship with other humble and social justice oriented people, please visit St. Basil's Church instead.
Beautiful cathedral. Completely renovated a few years ago. The choir is from the famous st michaels choir school. Beautiful.
