Dear friend and fellow disciple of the Lord:

Welcome to the web site of Holy Angels Catholic Church. Should you visit our parish, we would like to meet you in person. We believe that we are a dynamic, faith-filled parish.

Our church building is a majestic Gothic structure with air conditioning, traditional furnishings and an authentic pipe organ. Our parish grade school, Holy Angels School, was founded in 1858 and is a first-rate Catholic school. Also within our parish boundaries is Lehman Catholic High School, which began as our parish high school but is now a consolidated high school with students from a number of local parishes. It excels academically and is proud of the high percentage of students who go on to college.

As a parish family, we try to live faithfully the teachings of Jesus Christ as found in the Bible and in the teachings of the Catholic Church. We are a pilgrim people on our way to the "new and eternal Jerusalem." Come, join us on the way!


Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Frank Amberger
Pastor, Holy Angels Church

Recently released videos in which officials of Planned Parenthood traffic in human organs, tissues, and body parts from their abortion clinics are chilling and appalling. They display a callous disrespect for human life. Staff from the Family and Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese took part in "Women Betrayed" rally at Planned Parenthood's Cincinnati clinic on July 28 to protest this outrage.

However, we need to do more than raise our voices. I urge Catholics and all people of good will to write to their representatives in state and national government, asking them to stop the flow of your tax dollars to Planned Parenthood. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has supported defunding for many years. Planned Parenthood received more than $1.3 million in state funds from Ohio and $500 million in federal funds in fiscal 2013-2014. Click here to get a list of representatives.

Please also support a pro-life pregnancy center that helps women in unintended pregnancies, providing many needed services. You can find a list of them at http://www.catholiccincinnati.org/ministries-offices/family-life/respect-life/pregnancy-coalition-resource-page/

If you have had or participated in an abortion and suffer remorse, please know that the Church's post-abortion healing ministry, Project Rachel, stands ready to offer compassionate assistance. Learn more about Project Rachel at www.projectrachelcincy.com .


The novena’s primary intention is “for family and marriage,” including peace, sanctity of human life and religious freedom. Archbishop Schnurr encourages all to pray the rosary for 54 straight days either at home, individually or with families, in a parish community, or with the Facebook community at https:www.facebook.com/pages/54-Day-Rosary-Novena/120421517989201. Please visit www.54days.org for more information.
