My dear Friends in Christ,
The Diocese of Covington, established by Pope Pius IX on 29 July 1853, is home to some 90,000 Catholics, which comprise 20 percent of the total population of the 14 counties it serves. A suffragan of the Archdiocese of Louisville, we are one of four dioceses in the Commonwealth of Kentucky along with our daughter Diocese of Lexington and the Diocese of Owensboro.
I hope that you will find our website helpful and that it will provide you with a snapshot of our priests, deacons, consecrated religious and faithful laity as well as of the many ministries that our Diocese offers.
May God bless you!
Yours devotedly in the Lord,
Most Rev. Roger J. Foys, D.D.
Bishop of Covington
From Friday, Aug. 3, to Friday, Sept. 28, the weekly Call to Prayer will be adapted as a nine-week Novena for the Legal Protection of Human Life.
The upcoming Supreme Court vacancy provides another occasion requiring focused prayer. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops does not support or oppose the confirmation of any presidential nominee. However, given this historic moment, the U.S. bishops are urging all people of good will to pray that a change in the U.S. Supreme Court may move our nation closer to the day when every human being is protected in law and welcomed in life.
