We need your support for our Fiscal Year 2018 Capital Projects!

Please consider helping throughout the year with a one-time gift now, a monthly contribution, or an end-of-calendar-year offering.

Read about the projects here, or please take home a brochure from church for more information. 

This year, we are making some much needed updates to our beautiful churches, including:

Holy Cross

  • Repairing the Apse Wall (section surrounding the altar)
  • Refurbishing the Stations of the Cross

Our Lady of Good Counsel

  • Replacing the flooring & repairing the sub-floor
  • Renovating former library and current meeting space

St. Mary, Star of the Sea

  • Restoring the Bell Tower



The Catholic Community of South Baltimore joins together three historic urban parishes to be a beacon of Christ's Light in our neighborhoods and beyond. Entrusted with this light at baptism, we go forth celebrating the sacraments, proclaiming the gospel, and serving the people of God.

CCSB Highlights


Give back to help support the parish family in a number of ways.  Give to the Local Community the Archdiocese of Baltimore, or directly to CCSB.  

CCSB also supports the Community through Our Daily Bread, and other programs.  As part of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, we encourage our community to give to the Archbishop's Annual Appeal.  


Burying the Dead is one of the 7 Corporal Works of Mercy.  The other works  include Feeding the Hungry, Care for the Sick, Visit the imprisoned.  These Works of Mercy remind us of the need to give dignity  to the body in life and in death.  The Body is the Temple of the Spirit since each of us are made in the image of likeness of God.  The body in life and death therefore should be respected fully. 

Parish information




The Catholic Community of South Baltimore (CCSB) offers both daily and weekend masses across the three parishes of Holy Cross, St. Mary Star of the Sea, and Our Lady of Good Counsel.
