Saint Boniface is a Roman Catholic Church in the heart of downtown Louisville and has been ministering to the local community since 1836. We are a community formed by the Word of God, the Sacraments and the Tradition of the Catholic Church. We strive to be a catalyst for positive change in our neighborhood. We put the faith we have received into action through a variety of social outreach programs, namely: Saint John's Day Center for homeless men, Central Louisville Community Ministries (CLCM), and by assisting Nativity Academy in their mission to educate at-risk youth. In these efforts we strive to be a refuge for those in need, and offer hope to our surrounding community.
Saint Boniface Catholic Church welcomes all who wish to worship with us and to participate in this ministry of service to others.

The logo designed for Saint Boniface has a special meaning for us because it comes from our rich history! It is a modern take on the stenciling found on the sanctuary wall added in 2010. That pattern was discovered, during the same renovation, behind the stations of the cross. Those panels had been covered by years of soot and dust, and, once clean, clashed with the new paint. Nevertheless, the rediscovered pattern was taken for the sanctuary wall and the backs of the station panels were painted in our distinct dark red, which is visible today.
We did not make the same mistake our predecessors did. The historical work remains intact, just not visible, and the pattern, installed long ago, now represents the parish in the sanctuary and on our logo.
