According to information provided to the Archives by Father Peter Harris via email on 23 September 2019, the time frame for demolition of the old hall and construction of the new hall was as follows: "On Sunday April 18, 2004, a 'closing of the old hall' event was held after the church service. We gathered in the old hall for one last time, prayers were said and we all said 'farewell' to the old hall. Over the next three weeks, the demolition company performed to process of removing windows, wires, plumbing, glass, etc. Tuesday 11 May 2004 was the actual day of demolition of the structure. Some of us watched from the back stoop of the Church House, as the machine with the wrecking ball and mechanical jaws performed the actual taking down of the structure. By 4 pm, our old hall had been reduced to a pile of rubble. Over the next few days trucks picked up and carried away all the rubble, and then the construction of the new hall began. By early October the hall was almost complete and usable. The Dedication of the new Hall was Sunday 24 October, 2004. Bishop Hiltz was with us for this special event."

St. Peter's Cathedral Monthly magazine

  • CA PEI SPCA 900-23
  • Series
  • 1923 - 2003

The series consists of copies of St. Peter's 'Cathedral Monthly' magazine, a magazine produced by the church to share social events and other news about activities and events across the church community. The following background about the Cathedral Monthly is adapted from information provided on the St. Peter's Cathedral Church website in March 2004 (, accessed 14 February 2020):

The 'Cathedral Monthly' has its roots in a publication of that name that was first produced in St. Peter's Cathedral Parish during the incumbency of Canon E. M. Malone. Over the years since then, there have from time to time been various parish newsletters. The name 'Cathedral Monthly' was revived under the editorship of Peggy Holland (now Peggy Williams) in 1991, when she began editing and producing a monthly parish newsletter. Since then, the 'Monthly' continued up to 2004. The name "Monthly" was retained even in more recent years, when the publication was not produced monthly but every two months or so, except during the summer.

From the 1990s to the 2000s, approximately 300 copies of each issue were printed for parishioners, and another 20 copies were made available for subscribers and gift subscriptions. The money paid by subscribers and received as donations paid the cost of printing and mailing these copies.

Editors in the 2000s included Paula Connolly and June McKarris.

As noted in the 2004 description on the church website, the vision of June McKarris, as editor, was as follows: "each group or organization in the church should contribute a report for each issue of the Monthly. This way, those parishioners who do not get out to church on a regular basis and those of us who do attend each Sunday would be kept apprised of what is going on in our parish. June feels that the 'Cathedral Monthly' is a perfect instrument to showcase our beautiful Cathedral and the hard work many of our groups perform to sustain our present level of success. She is aware that many parishioners are interested in reading what is in the Personal and Parochial section, and she depends on you to pass on any information that you can for this column."

Publication of the magazine ended in 2003.

The copies available in St. Peter's Cathedral Church Archives appear to provide a complete run of the magazine. Additional copies are available for reference and display purposes.
