St. Paul's Anglican Cathedral demolishes hall

Regina’s oldest church is making some changes.
St. Paul’s Anglican Cathedral demolished its hall and is updating its style to match the 21st Century.
The hall was knocked down to make room for a new one that will better serve the congregation and the downtown community’s needs.
In the past, the hall has been used by self-help groups, 12 step programs, and refugee organizations for little to no rent.
The new hall will only be a third of the size, and will include a basement that provides access to the under croft of the cathedral. The new build will also be wheelchair accessible.
The project will also include improvements made to the main building of the aging church. It’s a heritage building, but church administration said it’s in need of restoration.
While Sunday services had had to make adjustments to the reduced space, there are few changes expected in the upcoming Christmas service.
