Pope Benedict has proclaimed this The Year of Faith and encouraged us to make a Pilgrimage of Faith. A local pilgrimage in the Roman Tradition is available for the Faithful of Columbus in “The Seven Church Tour.” The Seven Church Tour is a bus tour based on the “Seven Church Walk” started by St. Philip Neri in the 16th century in the City of Rome.  Fr. Joshua Wagner, a priest of the Diocese of Columbus and experienced Roman Tour Guide, invites you to become a part of this Tradition as we visit and pray in the Seven Historic Catholic Churches of the City of Columbus (this includes a visit to our own St. Mary).  A Plenary Indulgence for the Year of Faith, as well as Mass are part of the Seven Church Tour.  Seats are EXTREMELY limited for this Pilgrimage. If you want to buy tickets go to


THE MARRIAGE and FAMILY LIFE OFFICE has compiled a booklet of prayers, rituals, ideas and activities for the Lent and Easter seasons, “Lenten and Easter Traditions: Keeping the Seasons Holy.” This is a valuable tool in making the celebration of these liturgical seasons more meaningful. This booklet contains suggestions to bring the family together in sharing the sacredness of the liturgical season of Lent through Pentecost, and also provides historical and theological explanations. The price is $5.00 per copy, which includes the cost of postage, and is available by contacting the office at

In an unbelievably intimate and loving way, Christ chooses to give himself freely to us regardless of our condition. We can approach Christ at communion weakened, saddened, fatigued, confused, or bored, but because our Savior loves us so much, he chooses to give freely of himself no matter what our response.
