LIGHT THE NIGHT The Basilica of St. Mary in Minneapolis celebrated the lighting of the landmark’s facade Aug. 7 on its front steps. Adding new energy-efficient lighting to the facade of the church — including the bell towers, the Mary stone carving, and more illumination of the Rose window — will enhance the Basilica’s appearance on the Minneapolis skyline and make the campus safer with better lit areas. Father John Bauer, rector of the basilica, said a blessing in front of the estimated 450 people in attendance. Photo courtesy of Barry Howell/Picture Place Photography

OUR LADY ARRIVES A 400-pound bronze statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe was installed in the courtyard of the Cathedral of St. Paul Aug. 12. The statue was donated through the generosity of an estate gift from a longtime Cathedral parishioner, and Cathedral staff wanted to have it in place for the Feast of the Assumption Aug. 15. After noon Mass on the feast day, Father John Ubel, rector of the Cathedral, will dedicate the statue. The dedication will feature the Cathedral children’s choir, followed by an ice cream social.
