So Cincinnati: Pray the steps
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A "So Cincinnati" tradition is in its final hours for this year.
Since midnight the faithful have been "praying the steps" at Holy Cross Immaculata Church in Mount Adams. People say a prayer on each step leading up to the church.
The tradition dates back to 1860, before Immaculata Church was even built. Archbishop Purcell put a wooden cross at the site and built steps leading to it. People kept up the tradition after the church was completed and thousands still turn out each year.
