Covid-19 Update: Public Masses to Resume May 25

     Archbishop Schnurr has given permission for parishes in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati to resume public Masses on Monday, May 25.  Our first Mass will be the 9:00AM Daily Mass on Memorial Day, May 25. To see the Archbishop's letter, click here:  Archbishop Schnurr - returning to Mass

We will be implementing a number of changes to our normal routine at both daily Masses and our weekend Masses, and we've detailed those changes in a letter we mailed to all parishioners on May 13.  You can also access that letter here.  Please make sure to read it carefully before returning to Mass.  

Because the dispensation of the Sunday obligation will continue until at least August, and because we care about you and your physical and spiritual health, starting May 25, we will  livestream all daily and weekend Masses. See the "Watch Mass Live" link below to view Mass live.  You can also watch later in the day by clicking on the "Archives" link

  • Starting Monday, May 18, the Parish Office will be open again for our regular hours:  8:30AM-4:00PM M-F.  The church will remain open  Monday thru Friday from 10AM-2PM and Wednesday evenings 5-7PM until May 25.  A Parish Staff member will be at the Welcome Desk in the Narthex during those hours.  Please continue to respect Social Distancing and cleaning guidelines

 Continue to check our website and social media for any adaptations we make as we gauge the effectiveness of the changes we've made.

We look forward to seeing some of you again very soon, and all of you again as we are able.  May God, the Great Healer, be with us all, and may the Holy Spirit bless all us with good health and sustain us in faith, hope and love during this time of uncertainty.

Green means Go!  We've marked off the pews for the return to public Masses on May 25.  Please sit with the green tape to your back, and make sure to sit 6ft from anyone who does not live in your household.  Thanks!  

Coming to Mass in person may not possible, but there are a number of radio, TV, and online resources available to help you stay connected to Christ and the Sacraments, including Confession.
