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.
A place for prayer, reflection and meditation.
Two Masses are celebrated daily in the chapels,
Monday – Friday: 8:30am and 7:15pm
– Sorrowful Mother Chapel -south side corner on 1st Floor
and Confessions are heard on Monday, Tuesday
(usually 3pm – 4pm – off of Main hallway)
and first and third Fridays
(usually 6:30pm – 7:00 pm)
Many wonderful spiritual exercises have become a part of the
Center’s activities. 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.
