Christ Church Cathedral is the other church overlooking the Garden of the Provinces and Territories here in Ottawa. It is a regular participant in Doors Open. Founded in 1832, the current church was commissioned in 1870 in the English Gothic style. It serves as the seat for the Anglican diocese of Ottawa.
A recently installed sculpture of a homeless Jesus by Timothy Schmalz, an artist from St. Jacob's, Ontario, stands out front. There are others of this sculpture in various spots around the world, including in Vatican City, and he has another one here in Ottawa, a sitting Christ as a homeless person sculpture that is set outside St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church.
The front door caught my eye.
The sanctuary is a large, soaring one.
The stained glass in here is plentiful, from larger windows like the one overlooking the organ loft, to the regular ones alongside the sanctuary and even smaller ones here and there.
Here we have the altar at the front of the sanctuary, beneath its formidable stained glass.
This is just off the main sanctuary, a side chapel that can be used for a smaller service. I have more from here tomorrow.
