The Cathedral of the Assumption looks back to a long history of faith formation in Louisville, Kentucky. Dedicated in 1852, it is the mother church of the diocese and plays an active role in the faith landscape of downtown Louisville as well as Southern Indiana.
With Rev. Michael T. Wimsatt as pastor, the Cathedral of the Assumption builds upon a broad outreach to religious and civic communities in Louisville. It serves 3,000 registered parishioners and is home to various social justice programs, such as a daily homeless lunch program, and a Parish Twinning Partnership with the Cathédrale St. Louis in Jeremie.
Since 2000, the Cathedral of the Assumption has supported its sister parish with church pews, lunch for the students at St. Therese Montessori School, school supplies and electrical infrastructure as well as many other projects.
The Cathedral of the Assumption and Tek4Kids are connected through a long and close partnership. Tek4Kids’ founders were previously members of the Parish and found their love for Haiti on the Cathedral’s mission trips to Haiti. Several Tek4Kids volunteers belong to the Cathedral and have taken many trips to Haiti with the organization. Tek4Kids works in partnership with the Cathedral on various projects at St. Therese Montessori School, including water purification and technology.
