The Shrine

“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 130 friars of St. John the Baptist Province (SJB) are members of the Order of Friars Minor. We are a Franciscan brotherhood inspired by the 13th-century example of St. Francis of Assisi. We serve the Catholic Church as brothers and priests in a communal life of poverty, prayer, and service to others.

For the Holy Spirit to guide me as a teacher with very little technological experience to maneuver these online home learning teaching techniques and job skills necessary for my Kindergarten class so they grasp and learn and I do what is required by my administrators without stress. For my health and financial situation (prosperity). Love love

For my husband, Ed, daughter, Therese and I to be kept safe from contracting the coronavirus & that I am healed of strep throat and allergies & any thing else I am suffering from. That Ed’s job, company & industry be protected from a lay off and collapse. That the Saudis & Russia come to a fast agreement not glut the oil industry with anymore oil and cut back output now. That the curve of virus cases flattens and the deaths are far more minimal than estimated. That economy bounces back fast!
