The Baptism of the Lord

2021: The Year of St. Joseph
Meditation Prayer from Pope Francis

Father, you entrusted to Saint Joseph what you held most precious: the child Jesus and his Mother, in order to protect them from the dangers and threats of the wicked. Grant that we may experience his protection and help. May he, who shared in the sufferings of those who flee from the hatred of the powerful, console and protect all our brothers and sisters driven by war, poverty and necessity to leave their homes and their lands to set out as refugees for safer places. Help them, through the intercession of St. Joseph, to find the strength to persevere, give them comfort in sorrows and courage amid their trials. Grant to those who welcome them some of the tender love of this just and wise father, who loved Jesus as a true son and sustained Mary at every step of the way. May he, who earned his bread by the work of his hands, watch over those who have seen everything in life taken away and obtain for them the dignity of a job and the serenity of a home. We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, whom St. Joseph saved by fleeing to Egypt, and trusting in the intercession of the Virgin Mary, whom he loved as a faithful husband in accordance with your will. Amen.

2021 Stewardship
An Act of the Heart
From Pandemic to Post-Pandemic and Beyond
As the new year begins, so does our Cathedral Stewardship year. There will be some familiar elements to accompany the roll-out of the year: mailing of a stewardship letter and form; hearing from committed parishioners at Masses on the January 23/24 weekend; a special stewardship message from Fr. Linebach on January 30/31; and Commitment Sunday the weekend of February 13/14.

What's new? There will be one question we will all be asked to discern on the stewardship form. Living through the pandemic, we have had to rethink so many ordinary parts of our lives, and each of us probably has a real sense of what is essential to build upon. Let us know what is on your heart, your vision, for our parish as we go forward.
2021 Collection for Opportunities for Life

Next weekend’s collection, January 16-17, is designated by the four Kentucky dioceses as part of the Kentucky bishops' unified message advocating for a pro-life culture in our Commonwealth. In the Archdiocese of Louisville, funds from this collection will provide resources to pregnant women and new families in crisis, including material assistance and grant support for programming at Catholic Charities and other organizations providing support to pregnant women and families. If you wish to donate an additional amount over your regular stewardship offering, please designate the amount with your donation. You may also donate online by clicking here.

While it is not necessary for substitute teachers to have a teaching certificate, candidates should have at least 60 hours of college credit and must submit a resume, college transcript, and two letters of reference. Applicants also must submit proof of attendance at an archdiocesan safe environment training or attend a training before being hired. Training and ongoing formation will be provided to archdiocesan substitute teachers. To apply, go to www.archlou.org/ocs-employment. For questions about subbing in a Catholic school, please email or call Lori Weiter, lweiter@archlou.org or 502-585-3291.
