Pastor’s Message


Welcome to our Parish Family Website. For nearly a century, Our Lord Christ the King Parish in Cincinnati, Ohio has been a community of faith making a difference in the lives of its people. It has been serving God’s children through the celebration of the sacraments, through Catholic-Christian education and through ministry to the poor. We have an extraordinary heritage: from the first Mass offered in a store-front in 1926, continuing to today as we offer a multiplicity of services in our beautiful church, school, parish center, and recently built Cross and Crown Atrium. Our Parish brings together many people involved in liturgy, sacramental preparation, prayer groups, education, bereavement ministry, social justice, care for the needy, summer festivals and much more.

We are also blessed to have at our parish a nationally recognized Blue-Ribbon School: Cardinal Pacelli School (named after Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli, who later was elected Pope Pius XII, who blessed the cornerstone). From pre-school to eighth grade our students are given an excellent education as well as a Catholic moral foundation for their lives.

Come and be part of this amazing experience of faith, sacraments, education and service as a parish, a school, and a vibrant community. This is the family of Our Lord Christ the King, and there is always room for more!
