Diocese of Covington at 1125 Madison Ave., Covington, KY 41011-3115 US - HomeWelcome to The Diocese of Covington
My dear Friends in Christ,
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice in it and be glad! (Psalm 118:24)
Alleluia! The Lord is Risen! This is indeed the day that the Lord has made and we can certainly be filled with joy as we celebrate the victory of Christ over the grave. We can say with St. Paul: “Death is swallowed up in victory. Where, O Death, is your victory? Where, O Death, is your sting?” (1Cor 15:54-55)
Each year as we celebrate the great feast of Easter we are filled with hope and joy. It is the hope for a new life, a life which is eternal, a life procured for us by the passion, death and glorious resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! It is a joy that can never be taken from us, a joy that the world cannot give. This hope and this joy sustain us through any trials, doubts, failures or disappointments life may bring our way.
At this joyous time of the year I extend to all of you my heartfelt best wishes. May the hope and the joy of Easter fill your every day in every way. May the Risen Lord bless you and those you love!
Yours devotedly in the Lord,
Most Reverend Roger J. Foys, D.D.
Bishop of Covington
