Where We Pray: Young families are drawn to St. Cecilia Catholic Church by its strong focus on faith

OAKLEY, Ohio - The Tri-State is rich in the number and variety of houses of worship. In our weekly feature, WCPO shines the spotlight on where we pray.

St. Cecilia parish and school are landmarks in the Oakley community, serving the spiritual needs of some 900 families not only from the immediate neighborhood but from nine zip codes as far away as Northern Kentucky.

The largest group of worshippers is made up of those in the 23-40 age range, followed by those ages 41-65, and then 66-80.

The church’s most appealing features are its liturgies, history, captivating art and architecture, and a welcoming community, says Father Jamie Weber.

WCPO Insiders will learn why St. Cecilia's strikes such a chord with parishioners from a range of ages. Plus, they'll know how a very special flea market draws attention to the parish.
