The mission of Catholic Community Connection, an organization of Catholic sponsored education, health care, human services and senior living ministries, fosters collaboration to respond to the needs of all people within the Diocese of Cleveland. Inspired by our Gospel values, we will provide leadership to build collaboration to service human needs through the teaching, healing and caring ministry of Jesus.
Our mission, vision and values statement comes out of a strategic planning process that was completed in 2008 following a merger of Catholic Community Care and Caritas Connection.
Catholic Community Connection breaks new collaborative ground locally and nationally for the sake of advancing shared missions to care for those on the margin of society and working toward a continuum of care. Catholic Community Connection builds on the Cleveland Diocese’s strong support for social ministry, which has been advanced in the past few decades by Bishops Issenmann and Hickey, by Bishop Pilla for over 25 years and now carried on by Bishop Richard Lennon, as well as by the contributions and sacrifices of numerous religious women, priests and lay people.
