Churches

The Marion Community was built on a strong religious foundation. That foundation is evident as you approach each community and notice a vibrant catholic church. These churches include Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Precious Blood, St. John the Baptist, St. Nicholas, St. Rose and St. Sebastian. The structures highlight the hard work and dedication of the early German Catholic settlers of the region.

All of the Marion Community churches as well as other area religious attractions, including the Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics, a former convent, and the St. Charles Senior Living Community in Carthagena, a former seminary, are registered on the National Register of Historic Places and are a part of the Land of the Cross-Tipped Churches Byway. Additional information about the Land of the Cross-Tipped Churches can be found through the following links, provided by the Ohio Department of Transportation and Wikipedia.
