Since 1860, Cincinnatians have “prayed the steps” on Good Friday. Bishop Joe Binzer will bless the steps on St. Gregory Street at midnight, after which thousands of people will ascend the steps to the Church. Visitors are invited to enter the church to pray . Two Passion services (2 pm and 7 pm) will be offered. Parishioners will serve donuts and coffee from 6:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will host their annual Fish Fry from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The church will remain open until midnight.
Park on surrounding streets and, depending on what time you arrive, expect to stand in line for minutes or hours.
