Here’s an Official Postcrossing card from Canada! This card depicts the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Quebec City, which is just northeast of Montreal and Ottawa. Finished in 1804, it was the first Anglican cathedral constructed outside of the British Isles (modern day United Kingdom and Ireland). Anglicanism is a form of Christianity that bears deep roots in the Church of England, so having a place like this established internationally is pretty noteworthy. The cathedral became a National Historic Site of Canada in the late 1900s, a designation awarded to landmarks based on national historic significance. Most of it is still in its original state… which is impressive considering these types of buildings always seem to get torn up by disasters or war. Good for you, Holy Trinity! On the inside you can find a display of communion silverware that was commissioned by King George III. King George III was the Head of the Church, and there was even a special royal pew that was kept for him. The cathedral also houses the oldest change-ringing bells in Canada. Those are bells that are arranged in a circle and pulled by rope in musical succession (the same method as handbell ringers would use). The entire church, including the bells, are very much in use today, and it is open to visitors who simply want to witness the beauty and history of it. Thank you so much for sending me this postcard, Dave!
