Saint Peter in Chains Cathedral, the chief church of the archdiocese in Cincinnati, is a beautiful church to bring the family for Easter even if you're not Catholic, which is what we did one year! We're not Catholic but Terry, my ex-husband grew up Catholic & we thought it was important for the kids to get a taste of the various facets of Christianity in order to make up their own minds.

The choir singing in the balconies, the swinging incense, the pageantry of the ceremonies makes for a very heady Easter experience. We found it to be quite special for the occasion and it is one I've mimicked when I've been overseas in Paris - I attended the Easter Paques celebration at Nôtre Dame April 2003.

The church was designed by the same architect who conceived the Ohio State Capitol in Columbus, Henry Walters.
