Covington’s dramatic St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption (yes, both a cathedral and a basilica, a designation that means a church is architecturally or historically notable), is often photographed. Its windows, art, altarpiece, “floating” statue of Mary, and four organs — among other features — are all beautiful and well worth a visit to see. Not often photographed is the cathedral’s choir loft, where the Bishops Choir sings. Several years ago Bishop Foys directed that all churches in the diocese that had choir lofts should use them.
