Tornado Relief School Supply Drive

In March, tornadoes destroyed the library at Salyersville Grade School and damaged most of its classrooms. The school, located in Magoffin County (the fifth poorest county in the United States) is home to 550 students K-6th grade. St. Hubert’s, Clark County, along with the Venerable Bryant Kibler, the Rt. Rev. Chilton Knudsen, and Reading Camp, is spearheading a school supply drive. Every church in the diocese is asked to collect donations of school supplies and library books during June. Please . . .

Festival of the Bluegrass

The mission of the Festival of the Bluegrass is to maintain the roots of Bluegrass music in Kentucky and to honor the community spirit of evenings spent on front porches throughout Appalachia. That same spirit can be found around the campground as music spills beyond the stage to campsites. The family that founded this event are members of St. Michael’s, Lexington.
