Built in 1800, The Holy Trinity Cathedral is an Anglican Church located in Québec City and was established as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1989. Being over 250 years old, it is no surprise that this church has a few ghost stories attached to it. While there are a few ghost stories associated with this location, they all center around the ghost of a woman.
To keep with the creepy ghost lady theme, this spectre has been said to negatively affect the organ players while they play, and some have said that they’ve even heard a female crying while they’re playing. Even Queen Elizabeth II claims that she saw this ghostly woman back when she visited the church in 1964!
As to who this ghost woman is…no one really knows. One theory is that she was a nun at the church who had a baby (which is a big no-no), but her baby died (possibly murdered, even) and was buried somewhere on the property in an unmarked grave and that she is looking over the soul of her deceased child. Others have said that the church was built over the body of a woman in 1799 while construction was going on.
We may never know the true story of the ghostly woman who wanders around this property and makes her presence known from time to time. Although we may never know the true story, we can still feel her soul lingering, and if you’re lucky, or unlucky, depending on how you look at it, she may even show herself to you. If the stories above are true, hopefully, one day her soul may rest easy and she won’t feel the need to linger amongst the living.
