  • The Price Hill Community Council will host Dan Clark at the K of C Hall, 4109 W. 8th St. on Tuesday, May 12.  The meeting starts at 7:30pm.  Mr. Clark is a historian on the New St. Joseph Cemetery.  During this presentation learn of the hidden stories of the residents and how they played a part in Catholic development in Cincinnati.  This a Westside gem.

  • Rosary Rally:  Important!  The Rosary Rally will be on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 1:30pm.  Plan to celebrate the 10th annual Rosary Rally held at Elder High School’s football stadium (the Pit).  The celebration starts with a procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament as the center of our devotion.  The recitation of the Holy Rosary, together with worship songs and prayers, along with a 60-foot helium filled balloon rosary make this gathering a memorable event.  Annually nearly two thousand attendees come to this prayerful event.  Your presence makes a difference and blesses all those attending.  Local priests in our Archdiocese will lead us in prayer.  In case of bad weather, we will move indoors to the basketball gymnasium.  Any questions call Guy Langenbrunner at 763-0613 or Roger Glandorf at 251-7729.  May God bless you!
