Cathedral lights up in remembrance with illuminated images

Remembrance Illuminated runs Nov. 8 to 11 at Christ Church Cathedral,

For four cold nights in November, a light shines on the Christ Church Cathedral in remembrance.

The public can hunker down on a green space at Burdette and Quadra streets and watch the photos of Victorians and other Canadians will be projected several stories high onto the south tower of the cathedral.

“This illumination is intended as a gift to the community – an artistic reminder of Canadians’ role in international conflict from World War I and II through peacekeeping missions and Afghanistan,” said Michael Utgaard, who leads the creative team for the event.

Displays run about 20 minutes and there will be hot chocolate provided

Visitors are also encouraged to explore the wartime display inside the cathedral.

“This illumination project offers a chance for families to reflect on the sacrifices made by our community members and others,” said Ansley Tucker, dean of Christ Church Cathedral. “The Cathedral Commons is a natural gathering place for the immediate neighbourhood and beyond. We welcome people to join us.”

Remembrance Illuminated runs Nov. 8 to 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. each night at Christ Church Cathedral, 930 Burdett Ave.
