Financial Aid Application Open for JP2 Families

Deadline is January 31, 2018


Thanks to generous donors, the parish is able to provide tuition assistance (above and beyond the discounted rate and parish support) to some parish families whose children attend John Paul II Catholic School.


To help ensure that these funds go to active, Catholic families dealing with financial challenges, we use FACTS (a web-based program) as our primary tool for financial need analysis. Parish families who are experiencing financial challenges and whose children will attend JP2 in 2018-2019 are encouraged to apply for additional assistance through FACTS; applications must be received by January 31.


Learn important details and tips on our website, or login to FACTS.



Phase 1 to Begin This Fall!

Narthex Renovation Campaign Update

With over $381,000 pledged for the renovation project, we are ready to move forward with phase one, the interior of the narthex.


We invite you to prayerfully consider donating to this exciting renovation and taking advantage of any matching programs from your employer. Donation envelopes are in the narthex (lobby) and can be placed in the collection basket. Thank you, one and all, for your support!

Special Seminary Video


A graduate student at Northern Kentucky University, Ann Herbert,

produced this very fine video history of

Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West.


It is slightly over an hour long and a delightful look at this great jewel of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.





(Once you click on the image above, you'll be able to click the icon in the lower right corner of the video to make the image as large as your screen allows.)



Remembering Your Loved One


Consider having the red sanctuary candle by the

tabernacle lit "in honor of" or "in memory of" your loved

one. The suggested donation would be $5, and the candle

would burn for one week. Your loved one would be

mentioned in the bulletin and during the weekend

intentions. If you are interested, contact Joanne at the

parish office (522.3680).




Headed the Right Way?


If you've been away from Christ and/or His Church

and are ready to turn your feet

and your life back to Him,

we would love to help you

take those important steps!
