St. Michael’s Roman Catholic Cathedral, 65 Bond Street, corner of Shuter and Bond Streets, is the seat of Canada’s largest English-speaking Catholic diocese. Designed and built by William Thomas between 1845-48, the cathedral has been reconstructed and embellished by many artists and architects. The tower and spire were added in 1866 by Gundry & Langley, enhancing the cathedral’s grand Gothic inspired form, and bringing recognition to the young, talented architectural firm. St. Michael’s remains Toronto’s oldest cathedral and it is the setting for countless local and international ecclesiastical ceremonies and events.
