Where This Meets That

Friday Five – Cathedral of the Assumption

Cathedral of the Assumption, Louisville, KYMan, does Louisville, Kentucky have some beautiful Catholic Churches!

My family spent a long weekend visiting family and friends in Louisville, Kentucky.  Before leaving to return home on Sunday, we celebrated Mass at the Cathedral of the Assumption, located downtown.

Last year, we attended Mass at St. Agnes Catholic Church and were blown away by its beauty.  I was similarly awed this past weekend by the architecture at the Cathedral.

For this week’s Friday Five, here are five photos from inside the Cathedral. Enjoy!

Shucks. That makes five already!

Honestly, this church was so beautiful that it was hard to put the camera down, so . . . I’m going to share a couple more!

Closer shot of pipe organ.  And if you’re wondering if it was intended to resemble Jesus sitting on a glorious throne . . . beats me.  But it does.
