Back to St. John's Cathedral

ST. JOHNíS CATHEDRAL TOUR DETAILS
Thursday 25th November 2010

STOP 1 - Beginning in the grave yard (outside of the temporary wooden enclosure); it will include a general overview of the history of the three structures that housed Christian worship on that site dating back to 1681.
STOP 2 – Through the wooden gates and up the stairs into the cathedral; it will show where the stone broke – which led to the closure of the cathedral – giving details of the Font.
STOP 3 – Towards the centre of the church but more on the southern side; it will include explanation of the underground ventilation and water system; and a more extensive history of the 161-year old Cathedral including well known clergy.
STOP 4 – The altar; it will include an explanation of what the altar signifies in the Anglican system of worship and why it is considered to be sacred and a few minutes of silent prayer (if desired). 
STOP 5 – The North door; it will include mention of the church’s role in education, as well as the upstairs and organ.
STOP 6 - End outside at the base of the steps where the blessed stones are now located; it will include mention of the restoration work still to be done. Those wishing to contribute and take home a keepsake can purchase original slabs from the razed floor at this time, and have them weighted and authenticated.
People who may wish to have a private guided tour of the roof on the following Saturday can leave their names and contact information. (That will be done only by prior appointment).
