Practical Information

The Christ Church Cathedral in Fredericton, New Brunswick is an Anglican diocese built in the Gothic Revival style between 1845 and 1853. It was designed by the cathedral's first bishop, John Medley, who modeled it after St. Mary's Church in Norfolk, much to the dismay of the Ecclesiological Society. The society found that, while beautiful for a parish, the design was unfit for a cathedral. Committed to his vision, Medley defended the neo-Gothic style by finding examples of every architectural feature in various existing English cathedrals. Today, the Christ Church Cathedral in Fredericton mesmerizes with its ornately decorated windows and arresting spire, welcoming worshippers and visitors alike.
