On behalf of Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz and as pastor, allow me to welcome you to our Cathedral of the Assumption web site. Ours is a community of faith that dates back to the dedication of the Cathedral in 1852. Serving as the mother church of the diocese we strive for prayerful excellence in worship, challenging lifelong faith formation, and an active role in Jesus’ “foot washing” service to our neighbors.Located in the central business district of downtown Louisville, our parish of 1100 registered households (and 200 associate households) whose addresses are in 90 zip codes in Louisville and Southern Indiana, welcomes a broad outreach to the larger religious and civic communities of Louisville.
Here at the Cathedral of the Assumption we seek to nurture the unique call of every person to become a partner with God in the great mission of Jesus Christ. We consider the Cathedral “home” to every Catholic in the Archdiocese of Louisville and welcome all who come to our doors. You are invited to find in us an oasis of prayer, a beacon of social justice, and a family where no one needs to be invisible because of their race, social or economic background, marital status or sexual orientation.
The Cathedral staff and I are glad to be of service to you in any way that we can. This web site can provide you with an insight into the many avenues of grace and service that the Cathedral enjoys. Please feel free to contact us by e-mail or by telephone if you have questions about the parish or questions about how to become a registered active member. If you are interested in becoming Catholic our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults provides a flexible, but well-honed process to work with the Holy Spirit to prepare you to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation in the Roman Catholic tradition.Again, welcome to our web site! May God bless the good work He has begun in all of us.
(Very Rev.) Jeffrey S. Nicolas, Pastor
