Cathedral Plans to Adopt a Refugee Family


Cathedral Plans to Adopt a Refugee Family

Welcome Home – Not sure what language we will use for that sign yet, but members of the Cathedral are working with Catholic Charities to adopt a refugee family in the fall.  If you also share that interest, we invite you to come learn more on Sunday, June 30, in the Undercroft, after the 9:30 Mass.  Refreshments will be served.  Our group will help the newly arriving family with setting up their living space, providing transportation, and mentoring the family for three months.  In addition to this big list, there are many simple tasks that require very little time, but could make a big positive difference for our newest neighbors.  We encourage all ages to attend.

It gives me great joy to welcome you to the Cathedral of the Assumption parish.  We are the oldest inland Cathedral in the United States. Since 1830 countless men, women, and children have worshiped on the site where the present church is located.  When the present church was formally dedicated on October 3, 1852, it became the heart of a local church and city.

The same heart still beats today, as the Cathedral of the Assumption maintains a rich tradition of religious identity and civic consciousness with a reach both far and wide.  In addition to the many visitors who pass through her doors on a daily basis, parishioners are counted from twenty-seven counties in Kentucky and Indiana.  We invite you to number yourself among us as we continue our rich history as members of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ.  In this way, we can be sure to continue the mission of the Cathedral parish in fidelity and truth.

May God bless you with the company of the angels and saints and with the protection of the Blessed Mother, our patroness.


Very Rev. Michael T. Wimsatt, S.T.D.
