"How splendid the cross of Christ!
It brings Life, not Death;
Light, not Darkness;
Paradise, not its loss."
- Theodore of Studios
The History of Triumph of the Cross
The parish community of Triumph of the Cross is a gathering of Catholic families in the City of Steubenville who came together when six individual parishes were closed on June 8, 2008. Our members are the former members of Holy Name, Holy Rosary, St. Anthony, St. Pius X, St. Stanislaus and Servants of Christ the King Parishes. Currently we meet in two buildings, Holy Name Cathedral and Holy Rosary Church.
Fr. Tim McGuire was our founding Pastor. Fr. Thomas Nau became Pastor on July 1, 2008. Our Vicar is Fr. Mark Moore.
You can review highlights of the creation of the Parish and the installation of Fr. Tim McGuire as our founding pastor in September, 2005, the work of the Building Committee from 2005-2007, and the steps we have taken as a new parish community at this link.
