Our Lady of Grace Parish Officially Decreed!
Most Reverend Dennis M. Schnurr, Archbishop of Cincinnati, has officially decreed the formation of Our Lady of Grace Parish to be effective Monday, September 15, 2014. This decree officially merges Corpus Christi Parish and Our Lady of Mercy Parish into one Canonical Parish - Our Lady of Grace. It has also been decreed that both Corpus Christi and Our Lady of Mercy will serve as two coequal parochial churches, retaining their original names, as the Our Lady of Grace worships sites for the proper celebration of all Catholic liturgical rites and reservation of the Blessed Sacrament.
A transition team has been assembled by Parish Council to facilitate the merger. The Our Lady of Grace Transition Team has prepared and sent a letter via the US Postal Service along with a copy of Archbishop Schnurr's Decree to all current parishioners of Corpus Christi and Our Lady of Mercy. You may also view the letter and the Decree by clicking the link below. A full operational transition may take several months and the Transition Team is committed to keeping you informed via, at a minimum, the weekly bulletin, Sheep & Goats Gazette, Facebook, pulpit announcements and this website. Stay tuned as more details are worked out and become available.
