Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center is located in the heart of Greater Cincinnati and sits on 13.1 acres of beautifully landscaped property in a residential area of Norwood, Ohio. This magnificent structure, originally built in 1920 under the direction of Archbishop Henry Moeller as a major seminary, has now become a Marian center under the leadership of a Board of Trustees made up of religious and laity, with Rev. Michael Cordier as President.
On the same site, adjacent to Our Lady's Center, sits a stately twelve apartment structure with a large living room, kitchen, laundry, breakfast room, large dining room and office space. Built in 1911, this building is where Archbishop Moeller and all succeeding archbishops lived until the 1950's.
Two Masses are celebrated daily in the chapels, and confessions are heard on Monday, Tuesday, and first and third Fridays in the late afternoons and/or early evenings. Many wonderful spiritual exercises have become a part of the Center's activities- weekdays at 3 P.M. the Divine Mercy chaplet is recited. Tenants include The Catholic Shop, Sacred Heart Radio, Men of the Sacred Heart, American Heritage Girls and Our Lady of Light Foundation. Retreat facilities have been renovated to complement the old seminary architecture. We can now house 67 retreatants and spacious meeting rooms can accommodate many day events as well. We have hosted many Catholic organizations from around the area, and are looking forward to welcoming many new groups for the upcoming year. Please call 351-9800 for information or a tour.
Doors of the Center open each weekday morning at 8:00 a.m. and remain open until 8:00 p.m. Visitors are welcome to view the beautifully remodeled chapels, halls, offices, library, gift shop, restrooms, meeting and assembly rooms. We ask for your prayers and support as we continue to fulfill the mission of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
Our past is built on a foundation of formation.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present.
The best way to predict the future is to invest in it.
