Minnesota Moment: Cathedral Festival of Lights

Updated: October 03, 2019 10:26 PM

A special night for the Cathedral of Saint Paul. Thursday night, for the eighth year, the doors opened for the Cathedral Festival of Lights.

It's a rare chance for people to come in and connect with the historic landmark in a special way.


The event included special tours detailing the stained glass, rose windows and even the 100-year-old marble floors. These are all part of the Cathedral Heritage Foundation projects over the last 12 years.

This year, fundraising is focused on restoring the domed space beneath the famous "Angel in Prayer" statue at the back of the cathedral.

Saint Paul's Cathedral is the fourth-largest in the U.S.
