Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

St. James Cathedral (Toronto)

Family Tested

The sound of music

The gorgeous stained glass artwork framing the pulpit and the twelve colourful triptychs adorning the side walls make this one of the most beautiful churches in Toronto. It is topped by a set of twelve ringing bells. (Bell ringing practices normally take place on Mondays at 6:30 p.m.) In the summer, the adjacent garden is lovely. If you're lucky, you might get to hear the sound of the 87 ranks and 5,000 pipes of the St. James Cathedral's grand organ during one of their free recitals, normally held Tuesdays at 1 p.m. from September to June, and year-round on Sundays at 4 p.m.
