This is the Mother Church of Dayton for the Catholic Community. It is the first Catholic Church and is celebrating 175 years in 2012. It has been under Diocesan, Marianist and Precious Blood leadership throughout the years, so it has deep roots for many. One of the best parts is the music--very high quality excellent music. If you like the ARTS--The Schuster, etc.--You will enjoy our music. It is a mix of traditional, ethnic and contemporary music. We also have all types of people here--we have folks from all levels of economic and educational backgrounds, old, young, couples, families, singles, interracial couples, lots of adopted children, lots of big families. We have a refugee community as well. Mostly we have people who are trying to live the Faith in the world and they come here for support and prayer!The other great thing is that the atmosphere draws you into God's presence. With or without music, the thing is you will find God here.
