The Cathedral of the Assumption

The Cathedral of the Assumption is a significant architectural landmark in downtown Louisville. The program for this project includes the renovation of the Sanctuary, Old Parish School, and Rectory as well as a new building which contains the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, Museum, Offices, kitchen, and dining facility. The master plan also includes a large formal park space and a new lower level under the entire Cathedral. The design of the restored Cathedral respected the design intent of the original architecture while providing for modern liturgical and functional needs.
