       Welcome to the
    Basilica of St. Joseph Proto-Cathedral!

    We were the first (Proto) Cathedral, in the United States of America, west of the Allegheny Mountains.  As the heart of the Diocese of Bardstown, we served ten states. 

    St. Joseph's was built to welcome pioneers and to serve their spiritual, physical and intellectual needs, as well as, all who followed them.

    We invite you to visit and join us at Mass.  Your prayers will strengthen us! We would also like to invite you to share your prayer requests. 

    Please introduce yourself at Mass, so we can meet in person. 
    Our Mission is to embody Christ who never ceases to unite to God all who come to Him. 

    Fr. Terry Bradshaw
