For 25 years, nationally acclaimed Christmas at the Cathedral has been sharing the joy of the Christmas season with the Diocese of Sioux Falls. This year’s live performance returns December 16-19 at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph.

This year’s theme, “Be Born in Me,” is a first-hand account of God’s Incarnation into the human race. Through actress Apolonia Davalos, audiences will experience Mary’s perspective on the monumental moments of Jesus’ birth, and his miraculous life and mission on earth.

From the annunciation to the resurrection, the meaning of Christmas will come alive through the inspiring musical compositions and arrangements of Music Director and Conductor Dan Goeller and our featured soloists, Nashville recording artists Shane O’Connell and Shelley Jennings, along with the Christmas at the Cathedral Orchestra and Choir.

In addition to being an inspiring Christmas experience, Christmas at the Cathedral supports the poor and vulnerable in our midst through endowments for the Bishop Dudley Hospitality House, as well as the ongoing care of the Cathedral of Saint Joseph, one of the region’s most significant civic and sacred landmarks. God’s Incarnation is not just a historical event, it is something that happens within each of us every moment of every day.
