We have reached approximately $3.58 MILLION of our overall goal

Embracing Our Heritage... Transforming Our Future

In the Old World, the centre of a city was thought to be wherever its Cathedral stood. Although Saint John, New Brunswick is a city encompassing an enormous area with dozens and dozens of distinct neighbourhoods, it has but a few places that everyone recognizes as being in the very heart of the city.  The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is one such place. Built between 1853 and 1855, it is Saint John's only cathedral. Just steps from King Square, the Cathedral is the centrepiece of a community neighbourhood that also includes a hospital; respite and elder care facilities; community outreach ministries and services; and affordable housing that will reshape the former St. Vincent’s High School.

The Cathedral Restoration & Waterloo Village Revitalization Project is a $20-plus million project that will restore and preserve these historic properties, including the improvement of the Cathedral’s setting and visitor experience.

Measha Brueggergosman Home for the Holidays Concert Shines

With songs from her “Christmas” and “Songs of Freedom” albums, Measha Brueggergosman captivated with “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,” “Go Tell it on the Mountain,” “This Little Light of Mine,” “Do You Hear What I Hear?” “In the Garden” and “Un Flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle.” Her moving, percussion-enhanced performance of “The Little Drummer Boy” was like a call to adoration of the newborn Christ Child.
