About Us

Vision Statement

A fully engaged, local Church which understands and lives out the fullness of Catholic Social Teaching, affirming it as integral to Catholic identity. With this vision, the Church proactively shapes itself and prophetically transforms the world to reflect the Gospel’s call for life, human dignity and care for God’s creation.

Mission Statement

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.

To accomplish this, the Office offers parishes, schools and Catholic entities a wide variety of formational programs on Catholic Social Teaching.  It supports the development of “Communities of Salt and Light” through organized parish social ministry and coordinates a number of archdiocesan-level and multi-parish ministries around timely life, social justice, and rural life concerns.  It also represents the Archdiocese in the public square on many of these issues, carrying forth the positions of the Archdiocese, the Catholic Conference of Ohio and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.  Through local implimentation of the U.S. bishops’ Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Relief Services programs, we work to create bonds of solidarity between local Catholics and the poor and vulnerable in our communities and around the world.
