1916 - The All Saints' Cathedral Branch of the Women's Auxiliary and the release of the mortgage
In 1910, a group of Anglican women established The Diocesan Women's Cathedral League. The league’s primary purpose was to raise $10,000 for the purchase of a suitable organ. The league achieved this goal by 1912 and resolved to raise funds for defraying the large debt held by the cathedral. By 1916, the league had raised $7000, sufficient to obtain a release of the mortgage. Other organizations in the congregation of 1,563 (figure taken from Dean John Llwyd's visiting list) involved in the Cathedral's life were—Sunday School (enrolment of 300), Sanctuary Guild, Women's Auxiliary (Junior Branch), Women's Auxiliary (Girl's Branch), Brotherhood of St. Andrew (Senior Branch), Social Service League, Cathedral Men's Club, Guild of St. Barnabas for Nurses—Halifax Chapter, Girl's Club (for girls in domestic service), Cathedral Building Committee, and Young People's Association.
