Welcome Bishop-elect Father John Iffert!

Bishop Roger  Foys, the priests, deacons, religious and lay faithful of the Diocese of Covington rejoice at the announcement that the Holy Father, Pope Francis, has appointed Father John C. Iffert the 11th Bishop of the Diocese of Covington, Ky.

Bishop-elect Iffert asks everyone to join with him in praying every day this adapted prayer of St. Isaac Jogues as we prepare for his consecration and installation Sept. 30 at the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption.

Due to the limited capacity of the Cathedral Basilica, it is a ticketed event.  The ceremony will be live streamed here on the parish website and broadcast live on EWTN and

“Wherever I go from here, Lord, let me be strong in faith and poor in spirit. Make me a man after your own heart.”
