Corpus Christi
Procession this Sunday!
Archdiocesan Corpus Christi Procession
This summer marks the beginning of the Eucharistic Revival, a 3-year process initiated by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to renew our devotion to and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. The inaugural event of the Eucharistic Revival will be a public procession with the Blessed Sacrament on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, June 19, 2022. We invite all Catholics in the Archdiocese of Louisville to join us at the Cathedral of the Assumption for this procession immediately following the Sunday noon Mass. The procession will proceed through several blocks of downtown Louisville. This will be followed by a time of adoration and prayer in the Cathedral and will conclude with Benediction at 3 pm, followed by an ice cream reception. Parishes, schools, and other Catholic organizations are encouraged to carry banners in the procession.
A message from Archbishop Fabre
Social Concerns
Help Needed
Once or Twice a Month

Before the pandemic, Phoenix Health offered free services to our daily lunch guests once a week in St. Louis Hall during the time of our lunch program, 12:15-1 pm. A volunteer would sit in St. Louis Hall where patients were seen by Phoenix Health Team. 

At some point in the future, there will be a mobile unit for this. Until then, in order for Phoenix Health to return, we would like to find 2 or 3 volunteers to divide the visits among themselves to assure someone will be on site each week in St. Louis Hall when the Health Team comes. The volunteer is there only to make sure the health care workers have their area set up and to assure that this activity does not interfere with the lunch time volunteers and staff so both events happen seamlessly. It is not exciting work, but it does allow the Cathedral to be a site for healthcare for those who would not receive it otherwise. If you have an interest, please call Angela, 502-657-5213.

Camp Odyssey Scholarships Available
8 weeks of camps available through August 5
The Passionist Earth & Spirit Center believe that camps should be available for all children regardless of your income. We have scholarships available for summer camps at our center. Called "the coolest summer camp in Louisville," Camp Odyssey immerses children entering grades 1-6 in the three main aspects of the Earth & Spirit Center mission: spiritual practice, compassion for others, and connection to the Earth. As they explore the woodlands and meadows of our 27-acre nature sanctuary, work and play with our artists, garden and environmental educators, chefs, yoga and meditation instructors, and musicians, kids come to understand how ecosystems work, where their food comes from, and how to be more mindful and compassionate toward themselves, others, and their surroundings. There's plenty of time for yoga, meditation, games, laughter, creative projects, singing, and eating super-healthy snacks whipped up from our organic gardens.
