Welcome Reverend Olivia and her family to Calvary House
As my family and I prepare to move into Calvary House this month, I wanted to take a moment to introduce us more fully and share a little bit more of our story with you.

My wife Molly and I met in 2008 through mutual friends. Though we went to the same high school (go Walnut Hills Eagles!) we were a few years apart so we did not know each other at the time. When we met, I was studying at UC and Molly had just started her nursing program at Columbia. About a year after we started dating, I joined Molly in New York City and finished out my undergraduate degree at Hunter College studying Comparative Religion. After Molly graduated, we moved to Cambridge, MA so that I could pursue my MDiv at Harvard Divinity School. It was in Cambridge that we were introduced to the Episcopal Church. We were confirmed and married in the same church where I would later be ordained: St. James’ in Porter Square. After graduating from HDS, I spent two years ministering to college students at the Episcopal Chaplaincy at Harvard. During this time, Molly was working as a nurse practitioner serving under-resourced youth in the Boston area. We loved living, working, and worshipping in Cambridge and still maintain many friendships from our time there.

After much prayer, we decided to move back to our shared hometown, Cincinnati, in 2017. Molly accepted a job at the Children’s Hospital Transgender Clinic and I began a yearlong chaplaincy residency there simultaneously. I was hired on at Children’s and before accepting the call to serve at Calvary full-time, I worked as a chaplain in Psychiatry at the College Hill campus, ministering to mentally ill children and their families. Currently, Molly splits her time between the Trans Clinic and the clinic at Hamilton County’s juvenile detention center. 

Our family now includes our nine-year old, three-legged rescue dog Mingus, our boisterous and bold four year old foster son Asher, and our easy-going, smily eight month old, Scarlett. Being foster/adoptive parents is essential to our sense of call and we feel honored to be able to do it with the help and support of our families and community. 

In our spare time, we enjoy trying new recipes and cooking old standbys, reading, and exploring new cities, especially by kayak. 

Our family is so thrilled to spend this next chapter of our lives at Calvary House and in community with each of you! We appreciate your prayers in this time of transition.

Reverend Olivia 
Rev. Olivia and Family Invite you to an
Ice Cream Social ~ June 26th
My family and I are so excited to make our move to Calvary House later this month! We are grateful for everyone who has helped with the transition and for the many ways you’ve supported us through your prayers and presence in our lives. We especially want to thank Gary and the Building and Grounds Team for their extensive work prepping the house! It looks spectacular. 

We hope you’ll join us for an ice cream social to mark our move-in on Saturday, June 26th from 2-4 p.m. in the Calvary parking lot, and as our small way of saying “thank you.” Dojo Gelato will be serving scoops from their truck. 

RSVP HERE so we know how much ice cream to order!

We hope to see you and your family there.

Rev. Olivia

Earlier this Spring, Bishop Price held a Zoom webinar for priests hosted by physicians and mental health professionals. They urged churches to begin to hold in-person gatherings (taking appropriate precautions like mask-wearing and distancing) this summer, citing that the benefit for the mental health of children outweighs the COVID risk in a more highly-vaccinated population.

See you at church and at Procter Camp this summer!
A Notice from the Clergy, Vestry, and Staff

Each member of the Clergy, Vestry, and Staff is now FULLY VACCINATED.
We urge all members of Calvary Parish who are eligible for vaccinations to please receive one. If you need help making an appointment or getting to a vaccination appointment, please contact the Rector at or by calling her cell phone: 513-401-5781.

For your convenience and safety, Calvary will continue to stream worship online along with offering our in-person options for your maximum sense of well-being.
Driveway Resurfacing this Saturday
The Barriers will be up if you cannot park at the church. You can park on Greendale or Warren.
Becoming Beloved Community
Summer Book Study

This summer, we will have a weekly exploration of one classic text and one emerging text on the topic of how the Church lives out the call to Become Beloved Community.

Thurman and Spellers offer classic and fresh hope for the church and how we confidently and fearlessly love one another.

7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.

12 Weeks in June, July, and August via ZOOM
Come as you are available.

Both texts are available on the stage at church in Hannaford Hall.

If you are able to contribute to the book cost, please offer $20, otherwise, please still take the books and join the class.
El Hogar Mission

The people of Honduras do not yet have access to vaccinations. El Hogar is working to make sure each student has a laptop and internet access so learning can continue remotely during lockdown.

We will be taking up an offering for the next two weeks in worship. Please make checks out to Calvary Episcopal Church with El Hogar in the memo. Or, give directly at the link in this e-mail.
The Benevolence Fund
The Rector and Vestry of Calvary Parish have established The Benevolence Fund.

Please notify the rector of any need for housing, medications, or utilities expenses you are struggling to meet Rev. Allison. The Benevolence Team will blindly review requests and one-time payments will be made.

To donate, please send checks to:
Calvary Episcopal Church 3766 Clifton Ave
