The Rectory and Catholic Hill Doors Open Guelph


The Rectory and Catholic Hill

The restoration of this rectory, built in 1852, surprised the community with its rendered stone exterior instead of the expected limestone walls. It now contains residences for the priests and a new office. Online visitors will experience a guided walk around the rectory and the rest of Catholic Hill to hear the stories of Guelph’s most prominent landscape and buildings. Visit to listen, watch and learn about The Rectory and Catholic Hill.
