St. Georges Cathedral

 St. Georges Cathedral

Pointed arches, flying buttresses, vaulted ceilings…the interior of the St. George’s Cathedral is as commanding to the senses as is its exterior, sited at the crossroads of major Georgetown streets, the foundation stone for the present St. George’s Cathedral, built mainly of Greenheart, was laid on 21 November 1889.

The cathedral was consecrated on 8 November 1894 and dedicated by Bishop Swaby. It  is characterised mainly by Gothic arches, clustered columns and flying buttresses. Whether it is an article of furniture, the chalices, the memorial tablets or the Baptism registers – they all tell a story.

The St. George’s Cathedral was completed and blessed by Bishop Austin on August 24, 1892. The present Cathedral was dedicated on November 8, 1894. It is considered to be one of the tallest wooden buildings in the world.
