Welcome to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island...birthplace of Canada...St. Dunstan's Basilica

In June we travelled by rail from Vancouver (British Columbia) to Montreal (Quebec) where we spent five nights. We then took an overnight train to Moncton (New Brunswick). Next we drove to Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton (Nova Scotia), and flew home from Halifax.

Gorgeous photo thanks gemstone.

It not only has to cover the damage, Ank...we need a lot more money to invest so that the church has income for generations to come. "Givings" don't support maintenance or ministry costs in an expensive city like Vancouver. And you are right...these beautiful buildings must survive.

Wow, that's a lot of money but I'm sure that the sale of the apartment complex has yielded a lot of money. I hope it covers the damage. Such beautiful buildings simply have to survive.

There are many, many small church congregations amalgamating over here, too, Ank...and selling off their extra property. However, I think this church will always be supported by the Roman Catholic Church as it is their representative on the entire island. Speaking of maintenance costs...twenty years ago the congregation of our church took a risk, built a high rise apartment where our meeting rooms used to be, and used the income to maintain our church...to some extent. Last year we sold the apartment block...in downtown Vancouver...as we needed to earthquake proof the church, replace the roof, remove asbestos floor tiles, etc. We are out of our church for at least two years. It is a cathedral style church like St. Dunstan's above, and right now it has a huge hole in the floor of the south transept as they are putting in rebar and pouring new concrete to strengthen the foundation. The whole refurbishment will cost $40 million!

A beauty. In nl most churches like these are out of use now. There is not enough money for maintenance. Pity.

Thank you, Ardy. This is the church that we first saw from our hotel room. ❤️

The basilica is wonderful and the trees are beautiful in their spring outfits. Lovely scene. Thanks, Faye. ♥♥
