REMINDER: 11am Sunday Mass temporarily moved to Holy Cross!

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 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. The three separate parishes were combined under one legal state corporation and one canonical Roman Catholic parish. Review Archdiocesan & Parish News here.

Flooring Project at Good Counsel Underway

Work has begun on the new floor at Our Lady of Good Counsel. The blue carpeting far surpassed its intended life and we have found a beautiful and long-lasting solution. Please see the attached .pdf which outlines the scope of the project as well as a visual of the completed space. Follow our progress through photos! The overall cost of the project is $200,000. CCSB has funds in savings and from recent gifts to start the flooring project but could use assistance to complete it. Please give prayerful consideration to contributing; there are many sponsorship levels available.
