Celebrating 200 Years of Service in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati
“Let Your Service Shine”
An Archdiocesan-wide Service Day
When: Saturday, October 9, 2021
Where: Across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati
Who: As many people as possible across the Archdiocese – Young and old, families, parishes, schools, colleges and universities, young adults, youth groups, senior living centers, religious congregations, etc.
Why: Many religious congregations of women and men came to the Archdiocese of Cincinnati 200 or more years ago to serve new immigrants, especially German, Italian, Irish, and others, through education, health care, and other social services. Partnering with and engaging people of all ages today in service across the Archdiocese is a fitting way to honor and extend the 200 years of service given by Sisters, Brothers and Priests.
How: Each organization is invited to chose one of the following options:
A. Choose a ready-made project. For example, donate to a Catholic Charities food pantry, or partner with the Intercommunity Justice and Peace Center (IJPC) by writing letters for the World Day against the Death Penalty, which is October 10, with St. Vincent de Paul in Cincinnati or Dayton or with another organization.
B. Create your own project.
  •  Select a committee and a chair or coordinator for your 10.09.2021 project(s). Groups within a parish or small parishes could work together on the project(s).
  •  Create projects that will benefit those most in need and involve volunteers of all ages and capabilities.
  • Invite the volunteers.
  • By September 1, 2021, send your service plans to Cerb@sistersofmercy.org
  • On your service day, take pictures.
  • Send pictures, the number of volunteers who participated in your service projects, and a simple name or description of the service projects in each photo to Cerb@sistersofmercy.org
  • Help us spread the good news of the number serving and the number of those being served.
  • Celebrate with your volunteers the many ways that your group assisted others.
Go to www.Cincy200.com for updates, timelines, service ideas, contact information for agencies, etc.

Join people of faith across Ohio to stand in solidarity for abolition of the death penalty. Recognizing the injustices in our criminal justice system, we are unwilling to participate in the cruel and inhumane practice of sentencing our fellow neighbors to death. We join together across religious traditions calling in one voice for the abolition of the death penalty. Our goal is to register 1 faith community from each of Ohio’s 88 counties.

Because of your commitment, we have kept up our pace of gun violence prevention work, even during the pandemic — including distribution of over 12,000 gun safety kits across Kentucky and Ohio, and training over 100 people in Save A Life prevention training. We couldn’t do this important work without you!

We’re hopeful you will join us at our upcoming A Night for Life event in Cincinnati later this month, our most important fundraiser of the year, and help us continue to work toward our mission to find common ground to end gun violence.

A Night for Life 2021 will take place on September 25 and will highlight gun violence survivors and their Reflections on Survival. Each survivor has partnered with professional artists to share their stories of trauma and resilience through their chosen art form. Imagine the mass shooting of September 6, 2018 as told through visual art and music or a homicide told through dance or spoken word.

To ensure the health and safety of everyone attending A Night for Life 2021, we ask that each attendee, vendor, and performer provide either proof of vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test prior to entry into the venue. For more information regarding the event and the many ways you can engage, please visit this link.
