The Year of St. Paul in Ohio

A couple of public service announcements regarding events celebrating the year of St. Paul here in Ohio:

Toledo Diocese celebrates Pauline Year
The Diocese of Toledo is focusing its celebration of the Year of Paul from Jan. 25 2009 to June 29 2009.

On the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Jan. 25, an ecumenical prayer service is being celebrated at 3 p.m. at Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral. Representatives from other Christian denominations are invited to participate in the liturgy. The service is open to all who would like to participate in honoring St. Paul. Rosary Cathedral is located at 2535 Collingwood Blvd., Toledo, OH 43610.

In addition, six parishes in the diocese are designated as pilgrimage sites:
