About our office

The chancery, on behalf of the archbishop, expedites canonical matters; collects and preserves parish records; assists parishes and priests with civil law matters; maintains files on priests and parishes; and provides information on the church or directs inquirers to appropriate sources.

Letter of Suitability

When an Archdiocese of Cincinnati incardinated priest will be providing priestly ministry outside the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, a letter of suitability is required.  The letter is generally sent to the Chancery Office of the (arch)diocese where you will be providing the ministry as well as a copy sent to the parish/institution itself.  These letters are postal mailed, so advanced notice is needed and very much appreciated.  We can provide letters up to 6 months in advance of your requested date(s).
