Facts

  • The four shields flanking the entrance represent the four earliest parishes of the Diocese of Minnesota (left to right): Church of the Ascension, Stillwater (1846), Christ Church, St. Paul (1852), Holy Trinity Church, St. Anthony (1852), St. Columba's Mission, Gull Lake (1852).
  • Six additional figures are represented above the entrance, flanking the coat of arms (left to right): Cornelia Wright Whipple, James Lloyd Breck, Samuel Seabury, Jackson Kemper, David Buel Knickerbacker and Peter Trimble Rowe.
  • The church tower is an adaptation of the one at Oxford's Magdalen College.
  • The building anchors the southwest corner of Loring Park, overlooking it and downtown to the northeast.
  • 8 figures and 33 carved stones surrounding the entrance are a memorial to Frederick Grant Atkinson, a gift of his widow Dorothy Bridgman Atkinson Rood. John Rood, a later husband of Dorothy's, was sculptor, and Alonzo Hauser performed the stone cutting; the memorial was dedicated October 12, 1952.
  • Directly above the entrance is a coat of arms designed by Alanson H. Sturgis of Boston.
  • The two large figures in the niches flanking the entrance represent St. Mark (left) and St. Peter (right).
