Art at the Cathedral

The Cathedral of St. Paul recognizes the importance of visual arts in the spiritual life of the community.  The Cathedral owns a number of wonderful art pieces and we have hosted exhibits by local and international artists.

Inspired by the Gospel of Matthew 25:40, the sculpture sits near the Cathedral’s entrance.
