The Center 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 Center for Parish Vitality:

  • Offers leadership formation and training through live and virtual events, digital learning, 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.
