St. Saviour’s Pro-Cathedral, located at the corner of Silica and Ward Streets, is open for free tours, 11 am to 3 pm Monday to Saturday inclusive, during the months of July and August. 

St. Saviour’s is a bylaw-designated Heritage Church built in 1898 and rebuilt in 1929 after a disastrous fire.

In addition to carved wood architectural highlights, the church contains 16 memorial stained glass windows as well as numerous memorial plaques.

The stained glass windows are unique and collectively the best example of Church stained glass in the Kootenays and on par with those in Cathedrals in Vancouver and Victoria.

Volunteer tour guides will be in attendance to answer questions.

Alternately, visitors can pick up an informational pamphlet for a self guided tour or just enjoy a quiet contemplative time.
