People interested in issues confronting the Greater Cincinnati community are regulars at the cathedral’s Community Issues Forum from September through May. The forums are held in the cathedral’s third floor Forum Room, unless otherwise noted, and they are generally held twice a month on Thursdays at noon. They are free and open to all. All programs include time for questions and answers. Attendees may bring their own lunches or buy one at the cathedral for $6.50. See videos of past forums. Sign up to be on the mail list.
