Saint John heritage

The Official Blog of the Cathedral Heritage Foundation
ENTER OUR SECOND #SAVETHECEILING CONTEST AND YOU COULD HELP SAVE IT. 
 
As part of the ceiling repair phase of the Cathedral Restoration Project, we are giving away this 18x24 signed and numbered lithograph of The Cathedral, Saint John by Lynn Wigginton  

WIN HERITAGE ART

Built heritage is important to us. Saint John is renowned for its heritage architecture. It’s such an important part of who we are, of our history and of the hard work of our ancestors. That’s why we’re committed to preserving and restoring it. 

Saint John artist Lynn Wigginton captured the magnificent spire of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in a beautiful watercolour painting. The spire is an iconic part of the Saint John skyline – in fact, it’s the highest point in the City. When we saw this beautiful work of art we knew instantly it would be a great piece of history for one of our supporters during the #SaveTheCeiling campaign.  

TWO WAYS TO WIN 

We want to give you as many chances as possible to be entered to win:

  1. Go to our #SaveTheCeiling page and make a donation! You'll help restore a national treasure and one of Saint John's most important heritage buildings. For every $20 donated, you'll receive one entry.
  2. Visit the Cathedral Heritage Foundation Facebook page and tell us about your favourite heritage site in New Brunswick. (It doesn't have to be the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception!) Be sure to "Like" our page so you can be notified when we draw the winner.
If you do both, you increase your chances of winning. Last day to enter will be Wednesday, July 18 2018. Mark your calendars: the drawing will take place at 4:00 pm Atlantic Time on Friday, July 20 2018.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.

We're raising money to repair the ceiling of Saint John's Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. Every dollar counts when it comes to preserving one of New Brunswick's most important heritage buildings. It's a National Treasure! Please consider donating today.
