Lights of Christmas returns to St Mary’s Cathedral

The annual Lights of Christmas at St Mary’s Cathedral is again proving a major drawcard with families. The Lights are again being presented by Paynter Dixon.

From 9th to 25th December, St Mary’s Cathedral will be bathed in spectacular visual effects and complemented with a beautiful soundtrack, providing a stunning and meaningful family Christmas experience.

Choirs will be entertaining crowds from 7.30pm on Opening Night with the light show commencing at 8.30pm with the theme being HOME.

The three-part narrative will remind spectators the familiarity and importance of home especially after a tumultuous two years.

This year, the End Street Sleeping Collaboration is the event’s charity partner – a collective impact initiative whose goal is to end rough sleeping.

Collaborators include the NSW Government, PAYCE Foundation, St Vincent De Paul Society, St Vincent’s Health, Catholic Care, Mission Australia, the Salvation Army, and many more NGOs and philanthropists.

The free family event is now a fixture in the Christmas calendar and there is still time to view the spectacular light show. It will run until Christmas day.
