One way CPC lives its mission is by engaging in a variety of community outreach programs, like these:
AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Center), serving meals to clients.
A-SPAN (Ending Homelessness in Arlington County), preparing and distributing bag meals.
Plot Against Hunger, planting and maintaining raised garden beds producing 650 pounds of vegetables for AFAC.
Justice and Peacekeeping activities (see below).
Rebuilding Together, restoring the interiors and exteriors of homes of local residents in need.
People of Faith for Equality in Virginia, serving as public witnesses at the Arlington County courthouse.
Pride March parade in D.C.
Hosting and staffing Naturalization Workshops, with the Catholic Charities of Arlington Hogart Immigration Services, to help immigrants become U.S. citizens.
Sponsoring a wide variety of annual fund-raising drives, collections, and other special offerings throughout the year.
