“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.

The four oil paintings in the sanctuary are a notable feature of the Cathedral.  Presented to Bishop Flaget by Pope Gregory XVI, they represent holy people of other times and places.  From left to right the paintings are Blessed Julian of St. Augustine, Blessed Hippolytus Galanti, Blessed Angelo of Acri Receiving Loaf, and Apparition of Our Lady.  The portraits were originally used at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome during the 1825 ceremonies when their subjects were beatified (proposed as candidates for sainthood).  The paintings reflect the Cathedral’s mission to serve the poor and to provide for the education of children.
