Focus Areas - Catholic Conference of Ohio


The Catholic Conference of Ohio collaborates with clergy, religious, and laypersons from each of the dioceses of Ohio, primarily concerning education and a broader focus called social concerns. Social concerns include efforts to uphold the dignity of human life, protect the poor and vulnerable, promote marriage and family life, protect religious liberty, and care for the environment. In addition, the Catholic Conference of Ohio also supports the Catholic cemeteries in Ohio and collaborates with the diocesan Communication departments across Ohio. 


The Catholic Conference of Ohio collaborates with those involved in Catholic elementary and secondary schools. Meetings take place on a regular basis with the Superintendents of Schools as a forum for planning, discussion, cooperative action, and professional growth.
