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 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.
