"THIS IS THE LORD'S PLACE AND THE WAY TO HEAVEN"
An appropriate paraphrase of the Psalm to describe SACRED HEART PARISH, which has so diligently served the immigrant Germans and their descendants in this community since 1870, and then to be joined by the immigrant Italians and their descendants since 1969, from the original site on 5th and Broadway. Spiritual service is now rendered to all who come to worship the Lord at Sacred Heart.
The following was announced publicly at all Masses the weekend of March 9, 2014. It is now repeated for public record.
Bishop Joe Binzer, the Auxiliary Bishop and Priests’ Personnel Director of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati informed me that Father Earl Fernandes, a priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, has been appointed by Archbishop Schnurr to Sacred Heart Parish. He will begin July 1, 2014. Father Fernandes attended Mass at Sacred Heart before he entered Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West here in Cincinnati. In a way, he is a son of the Parish! Sometimes, he assists here with the Latin Mass on Sunday.
Father Fernandes serves on the faculty of Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West and he will split his time between the Seminary and Sacred Heart Parish. There are no plans to change the weekend Mass schedule or any of the regular activities and events that take place at Sacred Heart Parish. It is likely that Father Fernandes will serve Sacred Heart Parish between one and three years – when Archbishop Schnurr will name a successor. Also, it is likely that the successor to Father Fernandes will be a member of the community of priests serving at Old St. Mary’s Parish in Cincinnati.

"THE GIFT OF THE PRIESTHOOD" VIDEOS … Over the last month and a half, the Vocation Office has released a series of videos entitled "The Gift of the Priesthood." Filmed in conjunction with Mount St. Mary's Seminary of the West, they offer the opportunity to draw our young men into the consideration of a priestly vocation. The entire series, which we will continue to develop, can be found here: http://www.cincinnativocations.org/category/video/
