Social Concerns

The Archdiocese of Washington has several social programs working to promote global solidarity, justice and peace, with concern for the respect and dignity of human life. We invite you to put your faith in action.

Opportunities exist to help alleviate hunger, promote peace and non-violence, and give hope to poor and low-income Americans struggling to build a better life. With the wisdom and help of Catholic organizations and campaigns, we can transform our world to reflect the Gospel more fully. At the local level, we accomplish this through the work of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington which assists parish groups in creating or enhancing their ministry of service.
