The Offices of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will be closed April 19th and April 22nd. May the promise of Easter fill you with faith, joy and love.

Message from Archbishop Schnurr

Seek the Lord – April 2019


We are only halfway through Lent, and retail stores are well into offering Easter candy and sales on Easter outfits. This is only natural. We all want to skip death and get to the resurrection. Perhaps that desire is even stronger in difficult times. And we are living in difficult times.

In the civic realm, debates about political and social matters in our country (and many others) quickly become not only contentious, but uncivil and even hateful – especially when fueled by social media. Partly as a result, our leaders make little progress on important problems.

At the same time, the Church continues to go through a long, dark night of the soul. . . .
