From the Rector     

                  

It gives me great joy to welcome you to the Cathedral of the Assumption parish.  We are the oldest inland Cathedral in the United States and the mother church of the first diocese west of the Allegheny Mountains.  Since 1830 countless men, women, and children have worshiped on the site where the present church is located.  When the present church was formally dedicated on October 3, 1852, it became the heart of a local church and city.  

The same heart still beats today, as the Cathedral of the Assumption maintains a rich tradition of religious identity and civic consciousness with a reach both far and wide.  In addition to the many visitors who pass through her doors on a daily basis, parishioners are counted from twenty-seven counties in Kentucky and Indiana.  We invite you to number yourself among us as we continue our rich history as members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ.  In this way, we can be sure to continue the mission of the Cathedral parish in fidelity and truth. 

May God bless you with the company of the angels and saints and with the protection of the Blessed Mother, our patroness.

Peace,                                                                                                                                           Very Rev. Michael T. Wimsatt, S.T.D.

Repair Affair 2017  - Thank you,Team, for all of your work :  Ron and Linda Metts, Tim Grimes, Mike Romero, Sandy Imburgia, Tom Hammond, Al and Pat Wright.  Sensational job on painting the porch and wall around it, and part of the foundation; cleaning out the gutters;  trimming the bushes;  caulking;   painting partial parts of the kitchen;  fixing the fence;  securing the door locks and windows;   fixing the basement steps;  installing CFL or LED bulbs at exterior light fixtures;  improving the lighting in the inside rooms;  and adjusting and adding a cane bolt to the back gate.  It was a lot of fun working with such talented people!  You are great!  This year we also had Rose and Reba Wilson (the owners) helping us paint and clean up -- wonderful ladies, a pleasure to help them out.  I must say a special thanks to Linda Metts and Mike Romero for power washing the porch on Thursday, such dedication.

 Many thanks, Rita Owens
