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.

Contact:

Parish Office –  (502) 582-2971  

At the time of death, either the funeral director or a family member may contact the parish office (582-2971) to schedule a funeral service, ordinarily celebrated at a Mass in the Cathedral church.  A member of the pastoral staff will assist families with planning the funeral rites.

Planning

Family members are invited to take an active role in planning the funeral liturgy.  Planning may include selection of readings for the Mass and suggestions for music.  A planning worksheet, suggestions for music, and options for readings may be found below.

Ministries

Normally, family members or friends place the pall over the casket during the Introductory Rites and present the gifts of bread and wine during the Preparation of the Table and Gifts.  In addition, family members or friends may serve as lectors and ministers of Holy Communion.  Cathedral parishioners or staff will serve as altar servers as well as ministers of music and hospitality.  Cathedral parishioners may also serve as lectors and ministers of Holy Communion if the family wishes. 

Cremation

Although the Catholic Church recommends that the body of the deceased be present for the funeral liturgy, cremation is permitted either before or after the funeral liturgy.  When the funeral liturgy is celebrated in the presence of the cremated remains, the cremated remains are to be treated with the same reverence as the human body.

Before the funeral Mass, a worthy vessel containing the cremated remains is carried with reverence into the church and placed on a stand or table in the place usually occupied by the coffin.  The funeral Mass begins with the sprinkling of holy water and concludes with the rite of commendation.  After the funeral liturgy, the cremated remains should be buried in a grave or entombed in a mausoleum or columbarium.
