12 Nave of St. Dunstan’s Basilica Cathedral in Charlottetown, Canada

After the tragic fire of St. Dunstan’s Cathedral in 1913, the diocese decided to create a more elaborate interior. The plans of architect J. M. Hunter were inspired by New York City’s iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The English Gothic style of the nave is handsome. Especially attractive is the ribbed vaulted ceiling supported by Gothic arches. The combination directs your eye toward the rose window crowning the 37 foot high altar. Encircling the sanctuary are 23 statues of saints and angels.
