“Bologna Alley” historic marker sign unveiling set for October 16!

Please join us on October 16, at 11:30 am,  for the unveiling of a historic street marker designating the area where people line up for our daily lunch program as “Bologna Alley.”   Our daily lunch program has been in operation since 1937 and in recognition of the Cathedral’s charitable undertaking, the Louisville Metro Council has passed a resolution providing for the installation of a “Bologna Alley” historic street marker.   The honorary marker will be installed on the street post of Muhammad Ali Blvd. and Cathedral Way.

RCIA is a process designed for individuals who are considering joining the Catholic Church. Adults who have not been baptized and those who have been baptized in other Christian denominations are invited to explore the Catholic faith through a process of study, reflection, worship, and service. The Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) are usually celebrated at the Easter Vigil.

If you are interested in knowing more about the Catholic Church and possibly becoming Catholic, you are invited to be part of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).  This is the Catholic Church's means of welcoming new members.
