Happy 100th Anniversary, Diocese of Toledo!

From the Diocese of Toledo's website:
Foundation Day Mass: Celebrating 100 Years in the Diocese of Toledo

Foundation Day Mass: April 15, 2010

Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral

Established as a diocese April 15, 1910 by Pope Pius X, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Toledo encompasses 8,222 square miles in a mixture of urban and rural areas that spans 19 counties in Northwest Ohio. The diocese includes Allen, Crawford, Defiance, Erie, Fulton, Hancock, Henry, Huron, Lucas, Ottawa, Paulding, Putnam, Richland, Sandusky, Seneca, Van Wert, Williams, Wood, and Wyandot counties.

We will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Diocese of Toledo with a special Mass at Our Lady, Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral. Bishop Blair will be joined by Archbishops and Bishops from around the country for this special occasion.

    As captured by Jeffrey Smith, I think the Diocese of Toledo has some of the most beautiful architecture anywhere in the country. Whether urban or rural, there are some beautiful churches there, and there's nothing quite like driving across the glacial plains of Northwest Ohio and seeing a church spire from miles away, seemingly in the middle of a cornfield.

    It looks like you're all in good hands with Bishop Blair these days as well.
