The cathedral was designed by architect Louis-Napoléon Audet, of Sherbrooke, Quebec; the construction started in 1939 and was completed in 1955. Its bell tower is approximately 75 m high, the second tallest building in Moncton (not including the Bell Aliant communications tower). It features a Casavant organ. Pope John Paul II made a stop here in 1984.

It was erected by the Acadian community, which is predominantly catholic, as a monument in recognition of the Virgin Mary, also known as Our Lady of the Assumption. Since January 2010, a feasibility study in starting a funding drive is being done. Organizers hope to eventually raise approximately $7 million to allow much-needed repairs to the roof and stone exterior.
