"...the Cross of Christ is at the heart
of our earthly existence and guarantees
our heavenly destiny."
- Pope John Paul II

The parish community of Triumph of the Cross is a gathering of Catholics in the City of Steubenville who came together when six individual parishes were closed in June, 2008. We 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.

During the renovation of Holy Name Cathedral, all Masses are celebrated at Holy Rosary Church, 280 Rosemont Ave., Steubenville OH 43952 (Map)
