Our Story

St. James Cathedral Centre Event Venue, as we know it today, opened in 2012 in a building that had originally opened in 1910 more than 100 years before.  It was designed to meet the needs of the church and community much as the Cathedral Centre does today, and very different from those of a few years before when a Church School had occupied the site to serve the needs of a thriving Sunday School of several hundred children, a library for those children that was open on Saturdays, and even early classes for Wycliffe College, now a part of the University of Toronto.  Designed by Frederick Cumberland, it had opened in 1855 shortly after the Cathedral itself had opened for services in 1853.
