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.

Triumph of the Cross is the Cathedral Parish of the Diocese of Steubenville.

Please Participate in Diocese-wide Survey

To help strengthen the Mission of the Diocese of Steubenville, Bishop Monforton invites all parishioners who are 16 years-old and older to participate in a brief five-question survey regarding ways to strengthen our parishes and the Diocese of Steubenville. You may choose one of three ways to take the survey:
1. To participate online now through December 11, simply use the Survey Link on the left.
2. Next weekend at the December 10-11 Masses you'll have the option of completing a survey in-the-pew.
3. The survey has also been printed in the December 2 edition of the Steubenville Register.

Please participate only once through any one of these methods. Your survey responses are anonymous, so please feel free to voice your opinions.

New Adorers needed for Eucharistic Perpetual Adoration

In February 2017 we will be celebrating 20 years of our Eucharistic Perpetual Adoration in Steubenville.

But in recent months we have been experiencing a decrease in the number of faithful adorers because some passed away or are now too old or sick to be able to continue. For this reason our adoration chapel needed to close on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

The situation is worse during the winter months because some of the adorers move south temporarily for health reasons.

Please pray and consider offering one hour of your week for Eucharistic Adoration. Get more details by contacting Vivian Zlotkoswski at 740-264-6088.
