The Holy Family Social Action team uses Catholic Social Teaching as a guide while creating opportunities for advocacy, organizing, solidarity and charity.  The main focus of the team is on immigration and poverty.  The team looks for opportunities to collaborate with other churches and community groups to broaden our efforts.

The Social Action Team core group meets every two months to discuss the opportunities that have been presented to the parish, to prioritize activities, and to coordinate events.  

Members of the team who aren't interested in being a part of the core group but who want to remain actively involved and informed can join our mailing list by contacting Sister Tracy Kemme at tkemme@holyfamilycincinnati.org.

If you are interested in coming to a core team meeting to see if you want to become more involved contact Sister Tracy Kemme at tkemme@holyfamilycincinnati.org.

Journey of Faith/Camino de Fe

What does that mean?

O​n September 27, Pope Francis launched a worldwide two-year Share the Journey campaign which urges Catholics around the globe to encounter, walk with, and support migrants and refugees. The Pope hopes the campaign will break down barriers of fear and suspicion and build bridges of understanding and hospitality. He sees it as a response to the Gospel mandate:Love your neighbor. The Holy Family Social Action Team has decided to answer the call to “Share the Journey” by launching an exciting solidarity
initiative called Journey of Faith/Camino de Fe. Throughout the summer months, by tracking the miles we each walk, we will symbolically make the 4,800-mile
journey that our Guatemalan parishioners took to arrive to Price Hill. Along the way, we’ll also have educational materials and real stories from our parishioners.
