CALLINGS is the sharing of your and other group members’ stories on how God has impacted your life, and discovering how God has called you and continues to do so through your relationships and the events and transitions of your life.

The first step of CALLINGS is a weekly small group book study discussion.

What's Happening at St. Christopher...

A unique chance for voices to be heard

“Synodality” is best understood as the process by which synods make decisions. It is a way of helping the Church to achieve its mission by the collaborative input of its members. Not just the Pope or Bishops or priests, but ALL the people of God. A synodal approach involves hearing from all the baptized in discerning the will of God on how to best accomplish the mission of the Church. This includes all Catholics, regardless of how engaged they are in the faith, as well as non-Catholic Christians, the young, the old, the disabled, the poor, migrants and immigrants, women, religious, the laity and the clergy. Synodality calls us all to journey together, to gather in assembly. All are invited to listen to one another in order to hear the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

BEACONS OF LIGHT Transforming Parish into Families of Faith.

Beacons of Light is a multiyear process of pastoral planning for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati that began in the fall of 2020. Many factors have led to recognizing the urgent need to rethink and reorganize parish life for the future.

Rooted in prayer, groupings of parishes will come together as one faith community that live and work together in mission and ministry — not simply associate neighboring parishes that share a pastor.

These Families of Parishes will be stronger together, focusing more on mission than maintenance. In this new model of parish life and ministry, we will build on what we already have, and we will grow closer to God and our fellow human beings as we follow Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit and radiate Christ in our lives.

Through Beacons of Light, 65 to 75 parish groupings will form Families of Parishes in the 19 counties of Southwest Ohio. Parishioners will be invited to share their hopes and dreams as parish leaders come together to discern the future with the ultimate goal – in time – of each family becoming one parish led by a single pastor.

Six guiding principles have been outlined that define the common core that binds all of our communities together. These principles are Eucharist, Church, Leadership, Stewardship, Evangelization, and Love in Action. Over the next six weeks we will be exploring the deeper meaning of these principles to prepare ourselves for our new journey and to truly become beacons of light in our homes and our neighborhoods.

I hope you join us in this exciting endeavor as we more fully become God’s holy people.

You are the light of the world…Your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.

Matthew 5:14, 16

Thinking about becoming catholic?

The Time
Is Now...

Have you, or has someone you know expressed any interest in learning more about Jesus and the Catholic faith? Do any of these statements apply to you or someone you know:

  • I have never been baptized.
  • I am baptized but have had little or no faith formation.
  • I am baptized and have had faith formation in another religious tradition.
  • I am baptized Catholic, but have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA is a process that helps adults discern if the Lord is calling them to a journey of faith in the Catholic Church. A new group of inquirers into the Catholic Faith is forming. Perhaps you are, or someone you know, is searching for a way of life that will help you or them be connected to the life and grace of God through the Catholic Church. All are welcome. For further and more detailed information, please email Andrea Parker or call 937-898-3542 ext. 109.
