54 day Christmas Novena begins Nov. 2

54 Day Christmas Novena begins Nov. 2

The Director, Chaplain, and entire Family Renewal Project Team are eternally grateful to ALL who participated in the The Way of Trust 54-Day Rosary Novena — it has truly been our honor to pray with each and every one of YOU!

We’ve received many, many messages telling us how much you’ve enjoyed being connected in prayer with so many others during a time when we are so disconnected. If you would like to establish a connection with the Family Renewal Project, you can subscribe to our mailing list by going to clicking here. We send two electronic newsletters a month.

So what’s next? Many have indicated a desire for ongoing prayer and we too have felt the Holy Spirit leading us to offer another 54-Day Novena. We invite you to join us in . . .

The Christmas Way of Trust 54-Day Novena
Begins on All Souls’ Day, 
Nov. 2nd
Ends on 
Dec. 25th, Christmas Day 2020

Similar to the last Novena, we will pray our Intention Prayer for the first 27 Days; then our Prayer of Thanksgiving for the next 27 days. The Novena will conclude on December 25 as we thank God for the divine way He gifts us with JESUS CHRIST!

Sister Parish News

Late August 2020

We continue to correspond with our sister parish in Jérémie, Haiti. Below is the latest response to a recent e-mail.  It appears they are going with much the same things as we are. Our Cathedral continues to help them with expenses for school lunches – for many of the students, the only meal they may have that day.  Please keep them in your prayers.


~Jack Lydon, Sister Parish Committee

Hello Jack Lydon,


I am happy to hear from you and from the Cathedral of the Assumption. I give thanks to God who protected you from Covid-19.


In the parish of Saint Louis Cathedral in Jérémie, the number of victims of Covid-19 is not high compared to other places in the world. The resumption of religious services with assemblies is possible since July 12, 2020. However, barrier measures remain compulsory for parishioners and clergy. As at home, wearing masks is essential to access religious services in Saint Louis Cathedral of Jérémie.


Schools have been operating normally in Jérémie since August 10, 2020. The pupils of the Sainte Thérèse school are currently taking the exams which were interrupted in March 2020. They will soon have the results of the exams for the 2019-2020 school year. The 2020-2021 school year will start without interruption with the previous school year.


I welcome your new parish priest, Father Martin Linebach, Vicar General of the Archdiocese. May the Virgin Our Lady of the Assumption keep him under her maternal mantle and accompany him in his ministry to the parishioners of the Cathedral of the Assumption!


Hurricane Laura didn’t damage Jérémie. We were protected this time. We give thanks to God.

The Saint Louis Cathedral of  Jérémie remains united with the sister church, the Cathedral of the Assumption by prayer and thought.


May the Lord bless our respective parish

Because of Covid 19, his live fall/winter tour has been changed to a single virtual event on November 5.  This event will feature a live, interactive Q&A with Matthew Kelly himself.   Click here for details.



Our Cathedral Family Welcomes

Very Rev. Martin A. Linebach, Vicar General



On Wednesday, August 5,  Fr. Martin A. Linebach, Vicar General for the Archdiocese of Louisville, assumed his appointment as Rector of the Cathedral of the Assumption.  Father just completed a six-year term as Pastor of St. James in Elizabethtown.  He served as Associate Pastor of the Cathedral two previous times in his early priesthood, so many longtime members of our parish already know him and are very happy to see him return.

Welcome home!

Steiner-Reck Organ The 42 rank tracker organ has mechanical key action, and electric stop action. The gothic style casework is made of hand-carved mahogany.
Garden of Benevolence The stained-glass window in the garden was commissioned by the Cathedral Heritage Foundation during the 1994 renovation of the Cathedral.
Wood-carved Bosses The ornate woodcarvings or bosses on the ceiling were originally installed as a means for ventilation into the attic.
Arched Windows The Cathedral is designed in Neo-Gothic style. The arched windows of hand-painted glass allow sunlight to create beautiful images through-out the nave.
