Mass Intention Guidelines at Our Lady of the Valley

As of July 1, 2022 and becoming part of the Queen of Apostles Family of Parishes, five Masses are celebrated weekly at Our Lady of the Valley. Due to the decrease in the number of Masses offered and to allow as many parishioners and friends as possible to offer intentions, and in fairness to all those who wish to offer intentions, we will be following a new set of guidelines starting March 1, 2023. Following are a few points of the guidelines, for a complete list please contact the parish office at 513-554-1010 or

  • Canon Law states that we are required to fulfill intentions within one year; therefore, we are not permitted to take any requests more than 364 days out.
  • Requests for intentions for a specific date and Mass time will be honored, if possible, on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • A total of 8 Mass offerings per year for one individual or intention can be scheduled, even if they are requested by different individuals.
