As a Spiritual Center for the laity, religious and clergy, our purposes are to develop religious, charitable, scientific and literary programs and services to support the mission of the local and universal Roman Catholic Church. To establish educational, cultural and media facilities to advance the work of evangelization and the promotion of human dignity and family life.
Come to a quiet, prayerful place in which the Spirit of God can touch the heart and move the soul.

About the Center
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 Deacon Henry Jacquez 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.
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.
We ask for your prayers and support as we continue to fulfill the mission of Our Lady of the Holy Spirit Center.
