All Saint's Anglican Cathedral is the cathedral serving the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, which covers central Alberta. It serves as the episcopal seat of the Bishop of Edmonton.
The Parish of All Saints' was founded in 1875 by The Reverend Canon William Newton, the first known Anglican missionary to the Edmonton area. The parish first meet in a log cabin at the corner of what is now Jasper Avenue and 121 Street.
By 1895 the parish had grown considerably and required a new building. A new church was constructed on 103rd Street near the present site, however construction was only half completed due to lack of funds. In 1905 the church went through considerable renovations completing the original building plans.
In 1914 the new installed Bishop of Edmonton, The Rt. Rev. H. A. Gray, named All Saints' as the pro-cathedral of the Anglican Diocese of Edmonton. On December 20, 1919 a fire broke out and destroyed the church leaving only the outside walls intact. The pro-cathedral was rebuilt on the same site.
The present building was completed in 1956 after tearing down the structure built in 1921, and was finally given the permanent status of cathedral. The Parish hall to the north was demolished in 1973 with Cathedral Close, with the senior's complex/synod office building, eventually being built in its place.
