 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.

Stewardship, by definition, is the sharing of the time, talent, and treasure that God has given us.  It is a way of life, an understanding that “God owns it all,” the knowing that we are recipients of many unearned gifts, and a faith response based in gratitude.  With that in mind, stewardship calls us to receive God’s gifts, to be accountable, and to gratefully share these gifts with others.

Your offer of time and talent is greatly needed by the Cathedral parish.  Worship services and special events cannot happen without the generosity of many.  As the parish benefits from your help, you too will benefit from the life-enriching rewards of stewardship.

It is important for you to reevaluate your involvement each year.  Looking into other ministries can renew and energize you.  Take time to read about the exciting opportunities for involvement that the Cathedral of the Assumption offers.
