Diocese of Owensboro Celebrating 75th Jubilee

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Owensboro is celebrating its 75th Jubilee with several free events.

The celebration Saturday begins with a Mass at the Owensboro Sportcenter, then moves to the RiverPark Center for concerts, food, children's activities and tours of the International Bluegrass Museum.

The Messenger-Inquirer reports the newly renovated St. Stephens Cathedral in Owensboro will be open for tours for much of the day.

Thirty-two western Kentucky counties make up the diocese, which was formed in 1937 by Pope Pius XI. It is home to 79 churches.
