"Church of Character"
Parish is a Roman Catholic church of approximately
3,000 parishioners spanning all ages. The
congregation is predominately white, located in the
predominately white, blue and white collar Western
Hills area of Cincinnati. Ministerial staff
includes Senior Pastor, Rev. Donald McCarthy
(priest), an associate pastor (priest), and three
services include five weekend masses and two daily
masses weekday mornings. On Monday evenings and
Wednesday afternoons an adult Bible study is
offered; on Tuesday evenings, a charismatic prayer
group meets. On Monday evenings during the school
year religious classes are held for students
attending public schools.
A parochial school
is offered which serves approximately 560 students
from kindergarten through 8th grade.
An example of
outreach to the community is the church's Society
of St. Vincent dePaul, a center that provides food,
household and other items, financial assistance and
encouragement to neighborhood friends in need.
Another example is the church's support and
encouragement of St. Francis Seraph, an
Afro-American church in the Over-The-Rhine
inner-city neighborhood of Cincinnati.
