    4 to 5 p.m.: Off site tour: Cathedral of the Holy Family by Keith Henry (1 hour of self-directed learning)

    The Cathedral of the Holy Family is the new home of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon and the Roman Catholic Parish of the Holy Family. The program of the building includes a large worship space, community gathering spaces, and office space for both the parish and diocese.

    The building image was inspired by the hymn, "Lift High the Cross," a 1916 hymn written by Kitchin, Newbolt and Nichloson. The building form was seen as an appropriate image for the Catholic community to portray to the city, as an expression of their faith. 

    Lower building areas are clad with Tyndall stone quarried from Manitoba with window areas shaded on the southern faces with projecting sunshades.  The upper wall areas are clad with white architectural metal with the sloped roof areas and finished with a standing seam white metal.

    Holy Family Cathedral is located at 123 Nelson Road. You can access their parking lot from the first round-about on Nelson Road.
