Best of Canada, Nunavut

(continuer en français)

For the Anglican Church, Iqaluit is the seat of the largest diocese in the world, covering Nunavut, the Northwest Territories and Nunavik in northern Quebec. St. Jude’s Cathedral is also called the Igloo Cathedral for its rounded, white shape. This unique feature dates back to 1972 when the first version was built, after a fire a second, larger construction further emphasizes the resemblance to an igloo. Services are held in both English and Inuktitut.

  1. What a very unusual church! I’d love to see inside it. Have you photos of the interior as well? You should post them, I’m sure we’d all like to see them. It’s also nice to see a church attempting to blend in with its surroundings as this one seems to do.
