“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.
