Huge Christmas light show will be projected on Saint Paul Cathedral

23November 2020

The Cathedral of St. Paul will be illuminated with a light show that tells the story of Jesus’ birth in a manger for three nights in mid-December.

“Our Cathedral Illuminated: The Manger” will have light and sound created by Luxmuralis, an award-winning projection art company based in Lichfield, England. Their shows regularly draw 20,000 in the U.K., according to a Cathedral Heritage Foundation news release. It’s the company’s first show in the United States.

“Cathedral Illuminated” is a drive-by, view-from-your-vehicle event in keeping with Minnesota COVID-19 restrictions. Visitors will be able to tune to a radio signal for the music. The bike lanes going both south and north on John Ireland Boulevard in front of the cathedral will be closed off so cars can park and watch the 12-minute loop. The program starts at 6 p.m. Dec. 17-19 and will run continuously for three hours each night and stream live on Cathedral Heritage Foundation’s Facebook page.

The Luxmuralis projection is created by artist Peter Walker and music by David Harper. The presentation will run concurrently with the Lichfield Cathedral in England, according to CHF board chair Mary E. Schaffner.
