The parishioners of the Cathedral of the Assumption, in communion with the Archbishop of Louisville, are disciples of Jesus Christ and stewards of God's gifts to us. We commit ourselves to giving thanks and praise to God in Word and Sacrament, to engaging in life-long spiritual formation in the Roman Catholic tradition, to embracing the unique role of a cathedral in the local Church and civic community, and to responding to God's unconditional love by reaching out in hospitality and service to all.
The Cathedral's Daily Lunch Program serves a sustaining lunch meal to an average of 135 of Louisville's homeless and hungry 365 days per year. Anybody who enters the dining hall doors is able to receive a meal without restriction (usually soup, sandwich, salad, dessert, and drink). Food is prepared, served, and cleaned up by volunteers from around the community, and interaction between lunch guests and volunteers creates a safe, community-filled atmosphere for all involved.
