News Notes

Please note a correction for the Amazing Parish dates. The dates are May 13-15th. We are sorry for any confusion.


The world’s first K-12 Theology of the Body curriculum has been developed by Ruah Woods, a non-profit education and healing ministry based in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati dedicated to helping men and women live their vocation to love, according to God’s plan, as informed by Theology of the Body. Ruah Woods now has the entire K-12 curriculum available to pre-order. In a critical next step to help promote Theology of the Body, the Archbishop is requiring that every grade school in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati purchase the ROOTED curriculum produced by Ruah Woods Press, so that it can be utilized for the 2019/2020 school year. The Archdiocese and Ruah Woods is committed to help each school implement the ROOTED Curriculum. To that end, Ruah Woods will be offering 6 Regional Trainings on the ROOTED Curriculum free of charge.  The Archdiocese urges every principal and religion teacher to participate in one of these trainings. Dates for training will be announced soon. Go to to check out and order curriculum.

Catholic School Leaders’ Summit: Catholic Culture and Transformational Collaboration

Catholic educators share the vital mission of providing what the Church describes as an “integral education of the human person.” What guidance does the Catholic Church offer educational leaders seeking to respond to this imperative today? How can principals, presidents, and superintendents make their schools key stones of the new evangelization? You are invited to join Catholic school leaders from around the country on July 15th, 2019 in Steubenville, OH, as they explore these questions in light of key Church documents on education. Led by University of Notre Dame (Sydney, Australia) educators and the Franciscan University of Steubenville Master of Catholic Leadership faculty, this one-day summit will offer guidance on how you can build teams that authentically live the Gospel and help your school communities thrive.
