Neighborhood Engagement Team

The Neighborhood Engagement Team seeks to apply the principles and teachings of Catholic social justice in our own backyard.  We do so by increasing and strengthening relationships between Holy Cross Parish and the people and organizations who live and/or operate near us.  Our purpose is to improve the quality of life of all.  We do this primarily via cooperative actions with nearby churches, neighborhood groups, city agencies, NGOs, and ad-hoc groups of citizens that form to address specific concerns or issues.  Some examples of these efforts have included: joint prayer events with Kingdom Life Christian Cathedral; the annual Bringing Our Community Together rally; hosting the NNN’s annual Chili Supper; participating in neighborhood clean-up days.  We are always in search of new ways for Holy Cross parishioners to collaborate with neighbors to improve our area of South Bend.
