We often refer to the Cathedral Steps here in NDP, but I don't think we've ever shown the Cathedral itself. I learned last Friday there are volunteer "Welcoming Staff" inside (never seen them in my previous visits), and between 3-4PM on Fridays, Max is in charge. For a small donation, one is allowed to photograph inside, and there is a booklet on the history of the building of the cathedral, so I'm going back another Friday to see him, take better notes and donate/buy/photograph.
Meanwhile, this is the alter-end, at the top of the Steps, facing Trafalgar Street, and the sea. The structure is in gray marble, (Big Confession: I had thought it was boring old concrete all along!) and while it's no European marvel, it is laden with European Immigrant history of Nelson.
