The Catholic Telegraph Bucket List for January
In the January edition of The Catholic Telegraph, we introduced a new feature called the Bucket List. This is for the great events within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for you to attend, recommended by our readers. Here’s this month’s online version:
Recommended by: Athenaeum of Ohio Dean Father David Endres: “They have one of the largest collections of saints’s relics in the United States.” The second-largest collection, to be exact, with more than 1,000 relics. Built in 1879 and long staffed by Sisters of the Precious Blood, the Shrine’s Relic Chapel, museum, and grounds are open
daily for visits and tours. A variety of events are scheduled throughout the year.
Monday-Thursday 9:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Friday and Saturday 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Sunday noon – 4 p.m.
Midday prayer Monday- Friday (11:45 a.m.); Eucharistic
Adoration Tuesday-Thursday (1 p.m. – 5 p.m.), Mass
Saturday (10 a.m.)
Recommended by St. Mary (Hyde Park) parishioner Trey Rouse: “The only thing more beautiful than the building and artwork, are the people inside. It is one of the best hidden gems that our city has to offer. While many have driven past it over the years, not many have taken the time to check it out. Very inspiring.” The seminary’s Chapel of St. Gregory the Great features stained glass windows from Italy and mosaics (including the one above) from the Vatican Studios. Home to the archdiocese’s seminary, the Athenaeum educates adults from around the archdicoese. Its building and grounds include an amphitheater, prayer gardens, two chapels, an art collection, and the Eugene Maly Library. Lectures, concerts, and events take place throughout the year. To arrange a tour call (513) 231-2223.
Recommended by: Matt Swaim, co-host of the “Son Rise Morning Show” on Sacred Heart Radio: “Hearing the Mass in an unfamiliar language is a great way to see something in the liturgy that maybe you haven’t seen before. And it’s a way to get a sense of the rich heritage of German Catholicism
without having to book a flight to Germany!” Old St. Mary’s is the only church in the country
that offers a weekly German Mass.
Sunday German Mass:: 11 a.m.
Additional Sunday Masses:
Tridentine Latin: 7:30 a.m.
Current Mass in Latin: 9:15 a.m.
English: 12:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.
Old St. Mary’s also offers daily morning Latin Mass and noon English Mass, and English Mass Saturday at noon as well as Sunday Vespers. Additional special Masses, devotions,
concerts, and classes are offered throughout the year.
