The Basilica Heritage Foundation presents an unforgettable one man-play and guided tour of the Basilica of St. John the Baptist. Journey back in time to the late 1840s with Bishop Michael Anthony Fleming, interpreted by award-winning St. John's actor and writer Paul Rowe, as he guides you in and around the construction site of the new cathedral.

Bishop Fleming is regarded as one of Newfoundland's most important and influential 19th Century figures. His struggle to complete the Basilica provides insight into the social and cultural conditions of the young Colony during its early and often turbulent history. Learn how citizens of all faiths came together, inspired by Fleming's dynamic leadership, to construct  what was in its time the largest cathedral in the New World.
