Hi everyone,

Here’s some news from the Archdiocese:

Welcome back to church everyone. As of this weekend, the bishops of Ohio have lifted the dispensation from Sunday Mass. We can’t wait to see everyone back here at Mass, and filling our churches. For those who feel more comfortable with physical distancing, there are pews at the front of each section that are set up for that. Please respect those who continue to wear masks and those who do not wear masks.

Here’s some news from the Archdiocese:

INTRODUCING BEACONS OF LIGHT: PASTORAL PLANNING FOR OUR THIRD CENTURY – Archbishop Schnurr has announced the next phase of pastoral planning, called “Beacons of Light.” The process is designed to foster vital parish life throughout the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, leading all to radiate Christ in our homes, places of work, schools, parishes and the wider world.
