2021 Stewardship – An Act of the Heart

2021 Stewardship - An Act of the Heart
February 14, Valentine’s Day, is Commitment Sunday for our 2021 Stewardship Renewal process.  That may be one of the reasons the Stewardship Committee adopted a rather obvious as well as fitting tagline: Stewardship, a gift of the heart. We ask you to submit your form by February 14 or at your earliest convenience.
The very first question asks you to share what is on your heart for our parish family as we go forward. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sister Parish in Haiti news

Sister Parish Update
Sister Parish 

Sister Parish News from Jan 25, 2021

Recently the Cathedral wired $6,000 to Cathedral St Louis, our Sister Parish in Jeremie, Haiti.  Funds used for the lunch program at St Therese School.  Here is the thank you email Jack Lydon received, on January 25, 2021.

Subject: Thank you of the St Therese School for the lunch Program

Mr Jack Lydon,

I have a great pleasure to answer your mail. It is up to me to thank you for this help so precious in these difficult times that the world is going through. In Haiti, the socio-political and economic situation is very hard for the citizens, especially for the children. The latter are often victims of kidnappings by armed individuals. Their release depends on the ability of their parents and relatives to pay exorbitant ransoms. Children like adults live in fear. We have the feeling of being handed over to the bandits. Thus, keeping children in school and feeding them on site is a great contribution to parents. Thank you very much for the lunch Program of St. Therese School.

As for the evolution of Covid-19 for the parishioners of St Louis Cathedral in Jeremie, the situation remains stable. There are no known cases of people in the parish suffering from the Covid-19.

I wish all the parishioners of Our Lady of the Assumption Cathedral, the Pastor, and your family my best wishes for the health in the New Year! May Our Lady of the Assumption keep you under her mantle of grace! God bless you.

Fr. Marc-Arthur Emile,

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.
