Moving Towards Oneness


Urgent Appeal from CLCM

Urgent Appeal from Central Louisville Community Ministries

There are currently no funds available in Louisville to assist those with past due LG&E bills who are at risk of disconnection.   CLCM has served between 63 and 86 clients per month this year with LG&E assistance, keeping those folks in their homes (many landlords evict if utilities are not paid) with lights and heating/cooling on.  Yesterday we have started having to turn people away, as our grant funds have been expended.  Normally our grant funds would last the entire calendar year, but this year has been extraordinary.  Federal assistance for Covid has ended, and with gas and grocery prices so high, people can’t afford to pay their bills.  Any funding provided would go directly to our clients in our neighborhood needing assistance to keep their utilities on.  Thank you!

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.
