Old St. Mary’s 175th Anniversary Photos

Old St. Mary’s, the Oratory Church and the oldest standing Church in Cincinnati, celebrated its 175th Anniversary on July 3, 2017. Dedicated on July 3, 1842, the parish came together to celebrate this important milestone with a Solemn Mass and reception. Our sister parish, Old St. Peter’s in Munich, sent Alex von Künsberg to be with us for this day. Enjoy the photos below…
