RED BULL CRASHED ICE 2018: Sacramental schedule, Visitor information

The Red Bull Crashed Ice Championship returns to the Cathedral of Saint Paul on

January 18-20, 2018!

We are pleased that Red Bull has again chosen our magnificent Cathedral as the backdrop to this much-publicized event. In addition to an increased amount of positive "PR," the event also brings many people to the Cathedral, if even for a brief visit, who may otherwise have never come. Please pray with us for the safety of the athletes and all the people working even now for the event and for all the visitors it draws in our doors. May the beauty of this place proclaim the glory of Almighty God!
