Local Bishops to celebrate Mass for peace
Archbishop Dennis M. Schnurr and Auxiliary Bishop Joseph R. Binzer will each celebrate a Mass in celebration of the 46th World Day of Peace on the Solemnity of Mary, the Holy Mother of God Jan. 1, 2014.
Archbishop Schnurr will celebrate Mass at 11 a.m. at the Cathedral of St. Peter in Chains in downtown Cincinnati, while Bishop Binzer will celebrate Mass at 10 a.m. at St. Benedict the Moor Church on Liscum Drive in Dayton.

The Masses are sponsored by the Archdiocesan Offices of Catholic Social Action, Worship and Mission.
