Catholic Social Action

The Catholic Social Action Office and Commission empower Catholics in the Archdiocese to celebrate and live out the Gospel call for life, human dignity, and care for God’s creation through Catholic Social Teaching formation, organized social ministries, and opportunities for public advocacy and action.  We have organized ministries for the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Relief Services, and Catholic Rural Life Conference as well as for such current issues as respect life, immigration, care for God’s creation, poverty, international peace, and more. The office also coordinates and provides staff support to regional justice collaborative networks of parishes and other Catholic organizations: the Cincinnati-area Advocates for Justice Parish Collaborative, Dayton-area Weavers of Justice, and the Springfield Catholic Social Action Committee.  The office also serves as an initial point of contact for ecumenical and interfaith relations for the Archdiocese.

In some communities here in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, poverty afflicts almost one in every four people!  Last year, your support for CCHD tackled the root causes of poverty by helping over 3,500 local individuals of all ages change their lives through employment, job skills training, critical educational opportunities, and leadership training for the betterment of our neighborhoods.  Together, we can be faith in action and make a difference.  Please prayerfully and generously consider how you will give on Collection Weekend, Nov. 22-23.
