The Church of Saint Andrew and Saint Paul – Downtown Montréal
Located at the corner of Redpath and Sherbrooke Street West in an area of downtown Montréal known as the Golden Square Mile, the Church of Saint Andrew and Saint Paul is home to one of the city’s oldest Presbyterian congregations.
Formed through the merger in 1918 of two older congregations, Saint Andrew’s (est. 1802) and Saint Paul’s (est 1832), and built in the Gothic Revival style, this church was completed in 1932.
The Indiana limestone facade, 135 foot bell tower,
huge stained glass windows,
and the imposing inset archway to the main entrance doors are some of its key exterior features.
The stone carvings of the church’s namesake patron saints are just wonderful – just don’t ask me which one is Saint Andrew and which is Saint Paul 😉
Of course I had to take a stroll to explore around the Redpath Street side of the building
which resulted in the discovery a few more lovely doors.
This one is my favorite because of the way the pointed arches, an element seen in a number of places elsewhere in the building, are repeated in the top panels on the doors – a really nice touch.
