Saint Francis Seraph Church

2 Users like

St. Francis Seraph Church is a Roman Catholic parish in Cincinnati, Ohio. It was established in 1859 by Franciscan Friars of Province Of St. John the Baptist on the site of the first Catholic Church in Cincinnati, "Christ Church" which was built in 1819. Bishop Fenwick, in 1822, decided to move Christ Church to a location on Sycamore Street where St. Francis Xavier now stands. The church attempted to move the original frame church but it collapsed and fell apart.

The Church is part of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Its name comes from St Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscan order, which in turn founded the church. St. Francis had a vision of a six-winged angel, the seraph, for which the church is named.[1]
