Cole has been chosen as “2017 CHM Faith Community Nurse of the Year!” Norton Healthcare defines a Parish Nurse as a “registered professional nurse who is actively licensed in a given state and who serves as a member of the staff of a faith community. The faith community nurse promotes wholeness of the faith community, its groups, families, and individual members through the practice of nursing as defined by that state's nurse practice act in jurisdiction in which the faith community nurse practices.” E.A. was chosen from the many outstanding Parish Nurses from our local community to receive this award.  E.A.’s faith filled dedication to the Cathedral, it’s ministries and community outreach, especially to those whose circumstances prevent them from being able to attend the Cathedral is an amazing gift to us.Thank you E.A. for bringing this honor to our Cathedral Parish!

From the Rector                          

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 and the mother church of the first diocese west of the Allegheny Mountains.  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.

Peace,                                                                                                                                                             

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