NEW! Our parishes are joining all the parishes across the Archdiocese in launching a new prayer apostolate that encourages women to consider
becoming a spiritual mother to one priest or seminarian of our Archdiocese. Prayer for priests and seminarians has been proven to be
effective throughout the history of the Church. WE WOULD LIKE ALL THE WOMEN OF OUR PASTORAL REGION TO CONSIDER TAKING A PACKET OF MATERIALS FROM THE GATHERING SPACE OF EITHER PARISH TO BEGIN PRAYING FOR YOUR NEW SPIRITUAL SON. For more information about this apostolate please visit: cincinnativocations.org/spiritual-motherhood-of-priests.

Many have asked that the past reflections for the book Resisting be accessible online. Hopefully by the time you read this article, they will be posted on our website. If you do not have web access, call the parish office and we will mail you a copy.

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #1213) Through Baptism, we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God. We thus become members of the Body of Christ, and are incorporated into the Church, sharing in her mission.
