Billboards promote Divine Mercy Ministries locally
Wednesday, May 5, 2010
ARCHDIOCESE — “Trust Him.” That is what a new billboard campaign is urging the faithful to do. Produced by Divine Mercy Ministries, seven billboards are currently displayed in various locations throughout the Cincinnati area, bearing images of Christ with the message, “Jesus, I trust in you.”

The goal is to reach as many people as possible with this message, said Annamarie Short, campaign coordinator. “Our mission is to call on all of Cincinnati to pray in Christian unity at 3 p.m. every day, His hour of mercy, asking our Lord for mercy and graces for ourselves, our families, our beloved city and our country,” she said. “We are in urgent need to pray for, proclaim and practice merciful love.”
The billboards have been paid for by donations from local businesses and inviduals. There are two large boards measuring 14 feet by 48 feet. One is on Wooster Pike near Walton Creek by the McDonald’s. The other is at North Bend Road by West Fork Road. Five smaller posters, six feet by 12 feet, are located on Kellogg Avenue near Lunken; Colerain Avenue by I-75; Kemper Road near Deerfield Road; William Howard Taft Road near Reading; and Hamilton Avenue near John Gray Road and Route 4. All of the billboards will be up through the middle of May.
