This year the themes is Sacred Places – as the Churches, Synagogues and other houses of worship through the city open up for for tours and a chance to see some of the activities supported by the community places of worship.
St Paul’s on Bloor Street
One of the clear impressions attending the places of worship how vibrant they are in the local daily activities in their neighborhoods. This was exemplified not just by the many members ready to take you on tour, but also by such activities as choirs, shelters, kids programs – just a multitude of activities.

The other interesting aspect of Open Doors this year was the number of people with cameras taking pictures. Not just the popular places like TDCentre or Hart House – but also in the Houses of worship. And there were many stunning scenes to see.
