Blessing of the Animals

If you own a pet, or a pet owns you, plan to attend the Blessing of the Animals to be held on the front steps of the Cathedral on Sunday, October 2, at 2 pm.  This brief service gives us the opportunity to mark the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi and to give thanks for our pets.  All are welcome!

 

October is the month of the Holy Rosary.  October 7 is the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary To honor Our Lady after all weekend Masses October 8/9 the Rosary will be prayed following each Mass in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.  Please plan to stay after Mass to pray the rosary.

 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,

September 25 Filipino Festival

Connected by Faith. Enriched by Diversity.

These two sentences are on the cover of our bulletin weekly.  They are on the homepage of our website.  Well, come worship, eat and drink in some of this diversity on September 25 when our local Filipino Community hosts an evening rich in their culture—faith, food, and more.  

 

Funds raised  at this event go directly toward the Cathedral Scholarship Fund, which helps students, whose parents have limited income, attend a Catholic school.

 In 1989, just two years after St. Lorenzo de Ruiz, the first martyr of the Philippines, was canonized by Pope John Paul II, the local Filipino Community and the Cathedral of the Assumption started the tradition of a Filipino Festival.  This year the festival is on Sunday, September 25, beginning with the 5:30 Mass when a statue and banner commemorating St. Lorenzo are carried in procession.  The buffet of home-cooked Filipino dishes follows immediately in the Undercroft.  The suggested donation for the dinner is $10 and no reservations are required.  Please plan to come.
