Due to the increasing concerns over the coronavirus, the Bishops of Ohio, in consultation with Governor DeWine and the Ohio Health Commissioner, have decided that the temporary suspension of all publicly celebrated Masses/liturgies is extended through Sunday, May 3.

Should you have difficulty with our Streaming…

We are very thankful that so many faithful Catholics have been viewing the liturgies streamed from the Cathedral during this time when we are not able to gather and commune with one another due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The large number of viewers has, at times caused an overload to our systems.  We have increased our abilities to provide more bandwidth viewing directly from our link but problems are still possible.  Should you experience difficulty or interruption to the streaming it is because we have reached the limits, a situation that is beyond our control.  In that case please go to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati website and follow the links to the AOC Face Book page or YouTube channel for an alternate connection. 

You are in our continued prayers as we all move through this crisis.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.

Spiritual Communion

As we are unable to attend Mass and are watching live-streamed, offer the following prayer at the time of Holy Communion:

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

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.
