Columbus, OH...Family-Friendly Parish

Looking for a family-friendly parish near Columbus, OH…any suggestions?

A parish school is a plus!

St. Brigid of Kildare in Dublin.
St. Brendan in Hilliard.
St. James the Less in Columbus. Haven’t been to this one in awhile, so not sure it is even there. It was staffed by the Missionaries of the Most Precious Blood.

Hi cathyt,

I’m not sure what the qualities of a “family-friendly” parish are, exactly. As far as parishes with schools, it depends where in the city you want to live. A few ideas, in various parts of the city, would be: (near downtown) St. Mary’s in German Village, (north side) St. Michael’s in Worthington (they have four sisters there now, from the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist), (far east side) St. Pius X in Reynoldsburg, … There are lots of parish elementary schools. Here is a link:
