Statement of Significance

Description of Historic Place

St. Paul’s Cathedral is a Municipal Heritage Property occupying approximately three-and-a-half lots in Regina’s downtown core. The property features a 1½-storey stone church and attached hall prominently located at 1861 McIntyre Street.

Heritage Value

The heritage value of St. Paul’s Cathedral lies in its association with the history of the Church of England's Diocese of Qu’Appelle. Constructed in 1894 by Reilly and Company, this church replaced the first St. Paul’s church built in 1883. As Regina grew, St. Paul’s continually hosted diocesan synods, ordinations, and memorial services for public figures. In 1944 the church was named Pro-Cathedral for the Diocese. As membership grew, it became necessary to build a new parish hall. Completed in 1957, the parish hall houses an auditorium, kitchen, the Dean’s office, and rooms for Sunday School. Elevated to Cathedral status in 1973, St. Paul’s Anglican Church continues to be the centre of its diocese. As the oldest place of worship in Regina, the Cathedral is a landmark in the community.

The heritage value of St. Paul’s Cathedral also lies in its Gothic Revival architecture. The church incorporates several Gothic Revival elements, such as a corner bell tower, a four-sided spire topped with a pinnacle, pointed arch-windows decorated with stained-glass, buttresses and a gable roof. These elements were synonymous with large Anglican churches built in Canada and England during this period.
