“Bologna Alley” historic marker sign unveiling set for October 16!

Please join us on October 16, at 11:30 am,  for the unveiling of a historic street marker designating the area where people line up for our daily lunch program as “Bologna Alley.”   Our daily lunch program has been in operation since 1937 and in recognition of the Cathedral’s charitable undertaking, the Louisville Metro Council has passed a resolution providing for the installation of a “Bologna Alley” historic street marker.   The honorary marker will be installed on the street post of Muhammad Ali Blvd. and Cathedral Way.

Compassion is a community of persons offering support and pastoral care to gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual Roman Catholics and their families and friends.  This ministry recognizes the Roman Catholic teaching that every person has an inherent dignity because he or she is created in God’s image.  Respect for the God-given dignity of all persons includes the recognition of basic human rights and the right to a place in the Christian community, without regard to sexual orientation.  Compassion gathers monthly in an atmosphere of trust and equality for prayer, sharing of experiences and planning community outreach, especially to the House of Ruth.  Recognizing God’s unconditional love for all people, and through open communication and spiritual formation, they work toward understanding each other with respect, compassion and sensitivity. 

Meetings are generally held on the last Monday of each month at 6:00 pm with prayerful meditation and a potluck meal.

Compassion also organizes 5th Sunday Special Collections for House of Ruth - items are collected at all weekend Masses (on 5th Sunday of the month weekends) for AIDS/HIV patients and families served by House of Ruth.  Needed items are listed in the bulletin the week before each 5th Sunday.
