Also see . . . Old Log Church history. In August 1953, the log church became the cathedral of the Diocese of Yukon when the See was moved from Dawson City to Whitehorse. Soon the church proved to be too small for the growing congregation and in 1960, the new Christ Church Cathedral was constructed providing more space for parish activities.
