Demolition and construction finally began at 118 E. 12th Street this week, the site of the future Cincinnati Oratory. Crews began demoing the building on Tuesday, with full construction set to begin in early November. A lot of work has happened in this past week and here are a few pictures of what the place looks like now. We are still in need of raising another $350,000 to complete the whole pious house. Right now we have enough to complete two floors, but by the grace of God, we are already out of space with the acceptance of a new postulant last month and need to keep working on additional floors. This is a good problem to have for the Community and the entire Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Please be generous and please tell others about us who may be interested in the work we are doing in Over-the-Rhine. More pictures and information to follow in the coming weeks as progress continues, and more information about our new postulant (who comes to us from the State of Kansas, we are attracting vocations to the Archdiocese…) will be forthcoming… God Bless you all.
