Staff Member: Cary Powell
My name is Cary Powell, and I am so happy to introduce myself to you as the new Associate Director of Social Mission for Bellarmine and St. Xavier Parishes. I’m very much looking forward to meeting everyone and working to bring our shared vision forward, that of walking with the Excluded. I welcome the opportunity to work with many of you, listening, learning, and doing all we can to make a difference.
As to my background---the beginning of my working life was spent in the financial services industry. I left Fifth Third Bank in 2008 to become Director of Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund (CISE), where I spent eight years. I left CISE in 2016 to become Executive Director of Mary Magdalen House, an organization in Over-the-Rhine that works with people experiencing homelessness. Along the way, I’ve always been a volunteer, teaching CCD, coaching soccer, cooking for soup kitchens.
I’m a lifelong Cincinnatian and (dare I say it?) a very proud UC grad. I’m married to Brent, my husband of 34 years. We have three children and one grandson. I am so looking forward to becoming a member of the teams at Bellarmine and St. Xavier and doing what I can to humbly serve our parishes.
