Heritage

St Paul’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral was built between 1839 and 1844 on the initiative of the Queen Dowager Adelaide, widow of King William IV and the aunt of Queen Victoria. The Pro-Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Paul, considered to be the spiritual father of the Maltese nation. Its unique and historic identity is complementary to and in harmony with the Archdiocese of Malta, walking together in Faith. It is the architectural masterpiece of William Scamp. He took over the commission when the project faced serious structural issues, and ensured it was successfully completed. The building is designed to a Neo-Classical architectural style with a grand temple-front portico with Ionic columns. An array of eight Corinthian columns embellish its interior.

The Restoration Project

The fabric of the Cathedral is now in dire need of restoration. Recent expert architectural inspections have identified severe problems threatening the tower, the spire and the external and internal stonework. Parts of the structure are now officially described as “unstable”.
The need is pressing. An appeal is being launched to raise more than €8,000,000 (more than €8 million) for vital restoration work. The fund will be ring-fenced for this work only - it will not be used for running expenses.
The Restoration Appeal aims to meet its target of Euro 8 million by end-2021.
