St Mary's Lights of Christmas brings joy to the city of Sydney

Spectacular show

The Lights of Christmas 2013 have projected a spectacular, colourful display of art and animation on to the 75-metre southern facade of Sydney's St Mary's Cathedral, reports the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney.

Thousands of people gathered in the forecourt for the first night of what has become an increasingly popular tradition for Sydneysiders.

Using digital technology and 12 powerful projectors, the Lights of Christmas began with the story of the nativity which then moved into a sequence the children found exhilarating - Santa arriving by way of the Church spires into a child's dream to bring the toys alive which then move on to decorate a huge Christmas tree.

The final sequence of Madonna and Child features Renaissance art works of the Mother of God.

The Lights of Christmas will be on every night at 8.30pm up to and including Christmas Day night with a variety of choirs performing.
