Opening Day: The Archdiocese of Cincinnati in the Findlay Market Parade
The Cincinnati Reds were the 1st Major League Baseball team in 1869. Celebrating 150 years, the Archdiocesan Central Offices, Mascots from our Catholic High Schools, and the Drum Line from Purcell Marian High School marched in the 100th Findlay Market Opening Day Parade.
In 1869, Archbishop John Baptist Purcell led the Archdiocese of Cincinnati when the first pitch was thrown by the Cincinnati Red Stockings. Members of the Central Offices celebrated that part of history with a shirt of Archbishop Purcell.
