Dayton parish embraces Traditional Latin Mass

DAYTON — When it was time to pick a city and a job, Scott Wilson didn’t hesitate.
He and his wife and two young children moved from Illinois to Dayton, where he accepted an offer to work as a portfolio analyst at DP&L.
More than 50 percent of that decision, Wilson says, was based on the fact that there is an East Dayton parish totally devoted to the Traditional Latin Mass.

Holy Family Catholic Church, at the corner of Findlay and Third streets, is the first diocesan-approved parish in Southwest Ohio to offer the Traditional Latin Mass exclusively seven days a week. The church, built between 1905 and 1910, was entrusted to the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter — an order of priests that exclusively celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass — on July 1, 2010.
