About CRS

The Catholic Bishops in the United States founded Catholic Relief Services in 1943 as a relief effort for survivors of World War II. CRS now works in 101 countries with a staff of 5,000 serving 100 million people. CRS is motivated by the example of Jesus Christ in serving people on five continents. Although its mission is rooted in the Catholic faith, CRS serve people based solely on need, regardless of their race, religion or ethnicity. Within the United States, CRS engages Catholics to live their faith in solidarity with the poor and suffering people of the world. To learn more about CRS

Helping Parishioners Gain a Deeper Relationship With Those They Help

Would you like to help your parishioners gain a deeper relationship with the brothers and sisters they help throughout the world through the Catholic Relief Services collection and the CRS Rice Bowl faith formation program in Lent? Or throughout the United States through the Catholic Campaign for Human Development collection? The Catholic Social Action Office of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Parish Promoter project can help parishes build those relationships by sharing resources and connecting people to the good work that is done here in the U.S. and around the globe. We will do this by directly communicating with one or two individuals from each parish who will receive updates and ministry opportunities for Catholic Relief Services and the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and share them with their parish. The Catholic Campaign for Human Development is the domestic anti-poverty, social justice program of the U.S. Catholic bishops. Its mission is to address the root causes of poverty in America through promotion and support of community-controlled, self-help organizations and through transformative education. There is an abundance of information available from both organizations that can be shared with parishioners. Through webinars open to the public, updates and stories about individuals and families whose lives have improved because of CRS and CCHD, parishioners can gain a clearer knowledge of how CRS and CCHD are working for the United States faith community. For more information about the parish promoter project contact Sara Seligmann at (937) 281-4124 or
