Encounter the Beauty of the Cathedral Basilica

Illuminated Stained Glass Tour

Join us on Saturday, November 16th for our third annual fundraiser to support Creatio's mission--to guide all people to encounter the beauty of creation and the Creator through mission trips, outdoor adventure, and care for creation.

About

Join Creatio and Bishop Jorge Rodríguez on Saturday, November 16th as we return to the Cathedral for our third annual fundraiser, featuring a tour of the world-renowned stained glass of the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. Guests will witness the stunning beauty of the illuminated glass by walking around the exterior of the building. Hot chocolate included.

Following the tour, we will head to the nearby Knights of Columbus hall for heavy hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and a brief Creatio presentation with Bishop Jorge. We’ll also be auctioning off several items along with other opportunities to support Creatio.

We believe beauty is the best way to lead people to God. Our hope for this event is that the beauty of the Cathedral will illuminate in your hearts and minds a desire further our mission–to guide all people to encounter the beauty of creation and the Creator through mission trips, outdoor adventure, and care for creation.
