Picking up where I left off yesterday, when I left Laurier House for Doors Open, I crossed the street and went here. The parish of All Saints Anglican Church chose some years back to join another parish in the city, and an initiative was undertaken to save the building itself and turn it into a multipurpose facility. It was a project led by Leanne Moussa, a local resident I spoke with at a Civic Holiday event a couple of years ago. That process is now largely complete, and the result is allsaints (the lowercase letters and no space is as the place bills itself as, so I'm going with it). It hosts weddings, receptions, music, and other events, and serves in other capacities, such as an art studio or for education.
A good deal of the church decor is still there, such as memorial plaques or stained glass windows. Restoration work was undertaken inside and out.
The sanctuary itself was set up to show what a reception in here might be like.
There are several stained glass windows in the sanctuary. This first one is dedicated to Robert Borden, our Prime Minister during the First World War. Borden worshiped in this church when he was in Ottawa. I will show you more from allsaints tomorrow.
