CINCINNATI - There is nothing more Cincinnati than Praying the Steps at Holy Cross-Immaculata Church in Mount Adams: the quiet, the prayers and families sharing a sacred tradition.

It has helped define Holy Week here for generations.

Then there’s Reds Opening Day: the excitement, the fun and families sharing a tradition passed down from one generation to the next.  

It was only by a fluke of the calendar and Mother Nature that these two very special Cincinnati traditions came together on the same day in 2018. And some hearty souls took part in both.

WATCH what Tri-Staters taking part in both traditions said in the video player above.
