Members of nearly 80 parishes throughout western Kentucky gathered in Owensboro Saturday morning to celebrate an important milestone.
Thousands of people gathered to worship at the Sportscenter in Owensboro, some traveling more than three hours to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Catholic Diocese of Owensboro.
A parade of flags representing the 79 parishes of the diocese marked the beginning of the grand jubilee.
"A jubilee is a time to look forward, to say are we leaving the foundation that the next generation will build their faith upon," said Bishop William Medley.
