The Office for Parish Vitality fosters vital parish life in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati by supporting priests, deacons, and lay leaders as they lead their community to live and grow in faith, radiating Christ within the parish and beyond it.

The OPV:

  • Offers leadership formation and training through live and virtual events, e-news, and one-on-one support

  • Fosters a spirituality of stewardship as a way of life, guiding parish stewardship teams to create a culture of vocation and hospitality, stewardship formation, talent identification and ministry discernment, enhancing parishioner engagement, and annual stewardship renewal and commitment.

  • Guides Beacons of Light, coordinating the design of the Pastoral Planning Pathway and supporting the creation and implementation of pastoral plans within the Families of Parishes.


Lenten Retreats

Parish leaders – priests, deacons, staff, parishioner leaders – are encouraged to join us for a day of personal reflection and healing around the changes in parish structures by creating a space of listening, hospitality, and encounter with the Holy Spirit.  

The day will be hosted by Josh Danis (Alpha in a Catholic Context) and the Center for the New Evangelization, in conjunction with the Office for Parish Vitality.
