August 21 – November 20, 2020
Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley and the Opus Est Committee invite you to participate in a three-month-long Sentimental Journey that’s sure to engage, inform, and inspire you.
For many people, the past few months have put parts of their lives on “pause.” But the level of need in the community hasn’t paused, and neither has Catholic Social Services. Thanks to a dedicated staff that has been willing and able to adapt to new challenges, the agency has continued to forge ahead in providing services to those who need them most.
Catholic Social Services’ programs are fundamentally about empowerment: giving individuals and families the “hand up” they need to change their own lives for the better. Every couple of weeks during the Journey, CSSMV will send out an email that will connect our followers with the next installment in the story. Be sure to sign up so you’ll get to meet some of the agency’s clients and volunteers and learn more about what CSSMV means to them. You’ll also gain insights into the many different types of needs Catholic Social Services is meeting every single day.

No one likes a party more than the members of the Opus Est Committee! Because this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Jazz Party, we knew we wanted the 2020 event to be big and memorable. We settled on “Sentimental Journey” as our theme because it seemed fitting both in life and in song. Little did we know that our “journey” would take a new path.
Uncertain as to whether we’d be able to safely host an event for more than 400 guests, the committee decided early on to instead create an event that people could participate in virtually. We usually come together to tell our stories, we come together to break bread (and have a little wine), and we come together to support the wonderful agency, Catholic Social Services of the Miami Valley. This year all of that is still happening, but it will be online instead of face-to-face.
The stories you’ll hear will touch your heart and help you realize the variety of programs and support Catholic Social Services provides. We are blessed to share this life and so grateful to the people who serve our community in such an ongoing and dynamic fashion. We hope you will join us to share this Sentimental Journey – a three-month voyage that will culminate with a celebration on Friday, November 20.
It will be so sweet when we are able to be together again! In the meantime, stay well and thank you for your continued support.
Chair, Opus Est Committee
