Welcome

Welcome

St. Peter in Chains Cathedral is a historic downtown cathedral that is home to a diverse and thriving faith community. We hope that what you see here will lead you to visit the cathedral in person!

Over the years, the Cathedral has been the site of many significant celebrations in the life of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

The Cathedral continues to serve as the scene for a wide range of Archdiocesan celebrations and events, and groups holding conventions in Cincinnati often use the Cathedral for liturgies or concerts. 

In contrast to all the large-scale celebrations, the Cathedral parish quietly ministers to the poor of the area and to the constant stream of people who come to participate in the sacraments ... confirmations, baptisms, marriages and funerals - and, of course, the daily celebration of Mass and reconciliation - continue the living story of the Cathedral.

15th Annual White Mass

The next White Mass will be held at 11:00 am, on Sunday, November 17, 2019, at St. Peter in Chains Cathedral to honor the Outstanding Caregivers who have been nominated this year. Bishop Joseph Binzer will be the celebrant. A reception will be held after Mass in the undercroft. We hope you can attend to enjoy this special recognition! It is held each year in November, which is National Caregiver's Month.

Please join us as we pray for and honor caregivers at our 15th annual White Mass. After Mass the Order of Malta provides a lovely reception where the CEO of Catholic Charities, Ted Bergh, gives a short speech. The Cathedral offers a free, guided tour of the church; the guide will meet the group at the reception. All are welcome!
