“Mt. Airy” is the familiar name for the National Shrine of St. Anthony and Friary sitting on a hill above Cincinnati. The shrine had its start in the late 1880s, when Joseph and Elizabeth Nurre bought what was then a country estate for $18,000 and gave it to the Franciscan friars.

About the Friars

The 150 friars of St. John the Baptist Province (SJB) are members of the Order of Friars Minor, a Franciscan brotherhood inspired by the 13th-century example of St. Francis of Assisi serving the Catholic Church as brothers and priests, in devotion to the search for God in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others.

Thank you Lord, for healing my husband. Thank you for taking care of him while he is on board. Thank you that you still let him work, since we badly needed money for my sons schooling. I don't know how to live without you in our life. I praise you Lord and thank you for your never ending help.
