December 2022 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

As we anticipate the impending winter storm, we thought this image of a family enjoying the Starry Night display inside the Cathedral last December would bring you warm memories from the joyful 2021 Festival of Lights event.
The present Cathedral of Saint Paul serves as an important part of our civic community, an aspect welcomed by the rector, Fr. John Ubel, as he recently shared with the Star Tribune. It is always our hope at the Cathedral Heritage Foundation (CHF) that greater awareness of this monument will generate an emotional connection and commitment to supporting this community treasure and landmark Cathedral.
The CHF helps support the parish in its stewardship of the Cathedral through project restoration and improvement grants. We invite you to support CHF in 2023 with a one-time commitment, or a monthly recurring donation. The best way to do this is online at

Thank you all for your support and continued generosity. And we wish you all a very blessed Christmas and a joyous New Year.
Mary E. Schaffner

Chair, Cathedral Heritage Foundation
