Collection: Come To The Waters: A Spiritual Paulist Weekend in Marietta, Ohio

Father Steve will present spiritually inspiring presentations at the First Congregational United Church of Christ located at 318 Front Street, Marietta. The First Congregational Church is the first organized church in Marietta (founded in 1796) and is now the oldest continuous worshiping fellowship west of the Alleghenies. First Congregational Church lives by the mission “No matter where you are in life’s journey, you are welcome here.” We are grateful that this community is extending their hospitality to our Columbus Paulist Community! Sitting in this worship space is like sitting among a 225-year history of worshipers. Since its beginning, the unusual exterior architecture includes two “bell cones,” as the Twin Towers are often referred to, patterned after the Hollis St. Congregational Church in Boston. How appropriate that the Paulist charism of Ecumenism should play out in this holy place.

The weekend will conclude with Sunday Mass and a brunch following on the historic Valley Gem sternwheel passenger vessel that runs on the Muskingum and Ohio Rivers.
