Catholic Social Action

The Catholic Social Action Office and Commission seek to empower Catholics in the Archdiocese to celebrate and realize 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.
