Catholic Enrichment Center

Who We Are

The Catholic Enrichment Center (CEC) is an extension of the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Office of Multicultural Ministry (OMM). It was established in the spring of 2000 to provide holistic cultural enrichment, formation, academic development, and outreach ministry from an intergenerational family perspective. It builds on the assets of the family and the community while capturing the volunteer’s spirit. Though primarily serving the people of West Louisville, the CEC is a community gathering place where all are welcome. At the CEC people are able to find answers that enhance one’s life from a holistic perspective.
