 Annual Filipino Festival Next Sunday, September 24

Our local Filipino Community is hosting an evening rich in culture—faith, food, and more.  Funds raised  at this event go directly toward the Cathedral Scholarship Fund, which helps students, whose parents have limited income, attend a Catholic school. The recommended donation is $10/$10/person over the age of 10.  No reservations are required. 

In 1989, just two years after St. Lorenzo de Ruiz, the first martyr of the Philippines, was canonized by Pope John Paul II, the local Filipino Community and the Cathedral of the Assumption started the tradition of a Filipino Festival.  At the 5:30 pm Mass, a statue and banner commemorating St. Lorenzo are carried in procession.  The buffet of home-cooked Filipino dishes follows immediately in the Undercroft.  Please plan to come.

If you own a pet, or a pet owns you, plan to attend the Blessing of the Animals to be held on the front steps of the Cathedral on Sunday, October 1, at 2 pm.  This brief service gives us the opportunity to mark the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi and to give thanks for our pets. All are welcome!

 Hurricane Irma has caused massive destruction in Florida and the Caribbean.  We can support our brothers and sisters in these areas through monetary donations that will be used to specifically support the Diocese of Saint Thomas in the Virgin Island, recovery efforts of Catholic Charities, and efforts to provide pastoral and rebuilding support to the impacted dioceses through the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  Checks should include the notation: 2017 Hurricane Irma Collection and can be turned into the parish or mailed directly to: Archdiocese of Louisville, ATTN: Finance Office, P.O. Box 32533, Louisville, KY 40232-2533.

The Cathedral of the Assumption is a vibrant parish in the heart of downtown Louisville. Completed in 1852, it is the fourth oldest public building in the city as well as the third oldest Catholic Cathedral in continuous use in the United States.

The Cathedral depends on the generosity of parishioners and friends to meet the extraordinary demands required to maintain a 160 year old facility.  Your gift will help us sustain our magnificent Cathedral, support our social service programs and help us fulfill our most cherished goal - to serve as a house of worship and prayer.  Many opportunities exist to help us continue our mission of reverent and participative worship, lifelong spiritual formation, embracing the unique role of a Cathedral in the civic community and responding to God’s unconditional love by reaching out in hospitality and service to all.

Stewardship is giving as a faith response to all that you have been given.  Members of the parish can donate in several different ways:  weekly envelopes, Electronic Fund Transfers, and stock donations.  The  Bishop Flaget Society is for all who include the Cathedral of the Assumption in their estate planning.

You can designate your donation to any the following programs:

  • Maintenance of the historic Cathedral buildings
