October 2021 Newsletter

We are delighted to share that the Cathedral Heritage Foundation will bring back the Cathedral Festival of Lights event with a major expansion. We will present both indoor and outdoor Christmas light shows Starry Night and The Beginning, by Luxmuralis, along with an outdoor Christmas market, all located at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, 239 Selby Ave., Saint Paul.

This event will be both a gift to the community as well as a much-needed fundraiser for the Cathedral’s ongoing restoration needs. We are deeply grateful to the sponsors who have joined us to help defray costs. If you are able to give, please donate online at Cathedral Festival of Lights/Donate.

And thank you to our individual donors to date:

Dr. John and Anne Dowdle, Dr. David and Barbara Dries, Cay Shea Hellervik, Robert L. Lee, and Mary E. Schaffner
