FAITH AND ACTION: HISTORY OF CATHOLIC DIOCESE OF CINCINNAT (URBAN LIFE & URBAN LANDSCAPE)Rogern Fortin, Ohio State University Press; 1 edition (October 1, 2002)

It is important to know where we have come from in order to know where we are going.  The history of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is fascinating and full of drama and hope for the people of God.  Do you know how significant a role Bishop Fenwick and Bishop Purcell played in forming the faith of southwest Ohio and in forming a parochial school network that is the 8th largest in the county?  Do you know why that was important?

If you don’t this is the book for you!!!
