Tek4Kids, Inc. (Gary and Cathy Boice’s nonprofit) uses education and technology to break the poverty cycle in Haiti.  They provide existing schools in Haiti with clean water, electricity, computers and teachers.  Children share clean water with their families, reducing instances of cholera and waterborne illnesses. Students that receive computer skills from the Tek4Kids program will be able to find much more advanced jobs despite the high unemployment rate in the area. To learn more about Tek4Kids, visit www.tek4kids.org

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,
