At the invitation of Cincinnati's first Bishop, John Purcell, the first group of 8 Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur came to this country from Belgium. They arrived at Cincinnati's public landing on October 31,1840. 

The 2016 Cincinnati Partners in Action Luncheon was held on Thursday, May 12, 2016 at the Cintas Center on the Xavier University campus. Thank you to everyone who attended.  It was a great success!

“O God, you chose us to be children of the light, to always stand in the bright light of truth.”

How remarkable to be chosen as a child of light. Does my life reflect this reality?

Lord God, we are often overwhelmed by the darkness in ourselves and in our world. We depend upon you for guidance and grace.
