Our Mission

We are the Catholic Church in Central Kentucky, a community of believers rich in our tradition and growing in our diversity, striving for fullness of life in God. In communion with the Bishop of Rome, our mission is to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ by:

  • Worshipping God in word and sacrament;
  • Teaching and sharing our faith;
  • Serving human needs, especially those of the poor and oppressed;
  • Promoting holiness of life through continuing conversion;
  • Fostering justice and reconciliation among all God’s people.

We commit ourselves to thankfulness through responsible stewardship of all God’s gifts.


  • In pursuit of this mission we choose to emphasize these particular values:
  • The goodness of God manifested in all creation;
  • The dignity of the person called to wholeness in Jesus Christ;
  • The power of community committed to prayer, collaboration and service.


  1. To identify, claim, and celebrate our vibrant catholic faith, grounded in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
  2. To help form and support, with the power of the Holy Spirit, an evangelizing faith in Jesus Christ.
  3. To embrace the diversity of culture in responding to God’s love.
  4. To call forth and empower servant-leaders for ministry.
  5. To promote excellence in Catholic formation and education for all ages to build up the Body of Christ, the Church.
