Kola Owolabi in Concert - Kelty Organ Recital, Saturday, March 25, 2017, 7:30 PM, Free & Open to Public 

Movie Night, Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 pm—Calvary is our Movie Night selection.  It is not a historical Jesus story, however it does contain an obvious Christ-figure in the lead character Fr. James (played by Brendan Gleeson).   Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia reviewed the movie in Cruxnow.com.  He stated that Gleeson gives the best performance of a good priest that he has seen in years.  Archbishop Chaput says the story makes this movie.   In the first scene a parishioner enters the confessional and from behind the screen and says he intends to kill Fr. James in a week from Sunday.  We, the audience, do not see the potential murderer-to-be, but Fr. James has recognized the voice of the parishioner.  He spends the next week doing his job and living among and trying to help a large number of eccentric characters while his Calvary approaches. Archbishop Chaput also cautioned that this movie is not for the young or more sensitive viewers.  This caveat is echoed in a review by John Mulderig of Catholic News Service that states "it's not for the summertime popcorn set" alluding to language, violence, and sensitive subject matter."  However... "mature viewers prepared for rugged material, on the other hand, will likely consider their investment of time and attention well rewarded."  So please join us if you can in the 2nd Floor of the Office Building.  Popcorn will be provided, and discussion of this powerful film follows.

The Cathedral Choir provides music for every 9:30 AM Sunday Liturgy from September through June. 

Except for four paid section leaders, this mixed choir of approximately 45 voices is completely composed of volunteers.  The Cathedral Choir can be contracted to sing weddings throughout the year.

Their repertoire includes examples of the great choral literature from early chant through the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and 20th Century Periods.

With a strong musical tradition and a commitment to continued excellence in music and liturgy, the choirs of the Cathedral have also performed several times with the Louisville Orchestra and have given many concerts while touring in Italy, Ireland, England, France, Germany and Austria.  In addition, the choirs have produced two compact disc recordings.

Cathedral Choir rehearsals are held on Wednesday, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The Cathedral Schola is an ensemble, which provides music for select Noon Sunday Liturgy from September through June.  The composition of this ensemble varies from either men only or women only, to either a quartet or an octet.  Their repertoire is mostly drawn from unison chant, early chant polyphony, or Renaissance and Baroque compositions suitable for a small ensemble.
