  • Photos: St. Joseph time capsule buried

    Initially meant to be buried April 8, 2009 — which wrapped up a year-long celebration of the Diocese of Bardstown’s bicentennial — a time capsule at the Basilica of St. Joseph Proto-Cathedral finally went underneath the church’s porch Friday. Delays resulted when the company printing the parish’s updated directory went out of business. Later, there were defects in the original stone to be placed over the time capsule. Archbishop Joseph Kurtz blessed the capsule April 8, 2009, so it didn’t need to be re-blessed Friday, just buried.
