Justice & Service

This ministry responds to the words of Jesus, “I assure you, as often as you did it for
one of the least of these, my brothers, you did it for Me.”

How We Serve Our Community


This ministry performs works of charity and service for the poor and actively advocates for just laws and policies affecting human rights and dignity for all. We focus our efforts on three areas: Education, Action/Service, and Legislative Advocacy, as well as special events and projects.

We also maintain active membership in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s Catholic Social Action Office Weavers of Justice, and we help administer the SLFC Charitable Fund.


Outreach distributes the SLFC tithe (10% of the Sunday Collection) to the charitable organizations that serve the poor and needy in the Dayton area.  In addition, Outreach prepares and distributes Thanksgiving food baskets and distributes Christmas gifts to designated recipients.  Funds are often used to help people in an unexpected financial crisis as well as donations to the First Dawn Pantry located the Restoration Church in downtown Centerville.

This is an annual collection to support the work of Elizabeth’s New Life Center. Sign up if you are interested in being on the coordinating committee or to be a volunteer for other pro-life activities.
