A reminder that Forty Hours will begin tomorrow, February 23, at the conclusion of the 7:15 a.m. Mass. Adoration will continue until 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 24, with Benediction. Adoration will momentarily stop during the 12:10 p.m. Mass on Friday and the 9:00 a.m. Mass on Saturday.

A few points to keep in mind:

  1. After 5:00 pm, please try to park in the lot behind the church where the Fathers and Sisters park.
  2. If you do park in the big Clay Street Lot or the Main Street lot, please ensure a parking pass is displayed on the dashboard. Parking passes will be available near the side door of the church.
  3. DO NOT park in the Salvation Army parking lots unless you have paid to park there.
  4. If the main doors of the church are locked, please enter by the side door.
  5. The side door will lock at 9:00 pm, so just knock after this time.
  6. If there are any issues in the midst of adoration, or anyone causing any issues, please call 911 and also the parish emergency line (513-721-2988 and follow the prompts).
  7. Please sign in near the side door.
  8. Thank you to everyone who signed up for an hour! There will be at least 290 Holy Hours this coming weekend!
  9. Join us for the closing, and please bring a dish to share at the parish potluck.

Please be sure to pray for the Church, the world, the intentions of the Oratory, and our churches. May this be a spiritually fruitful time for us and the parish family!
