Lenten Almsgiving 2023

Feb 18, 2022

Every year during Lent, Our Lady Star of the Sea chooses several organizations for almsgiving - these are organizations that give back to the community in some significant way. Read about this year's choices and consider making a donation.

Mark the organization(s) you would like to help on the envelopes found in the gathering space. All checks payable to OLSOS.

Envelopes can be dropped off in the offertory boxes, parish office, or brought to the Liturgy of the Lord's Supper, Holy Thursday Evening.

The mission of Gianna House is to provide a safe residence for at-risk pregnant girls and young women and their newborn infants while providing spiritual, educational, and parenting support and resources to underserved women in our programs.

To advance the mission of serving college students DCCM is looking for your support. With your generosity DCCM can meet the spiritual needs of supporting college students in the Detroit area. Led by chaplain, Fr. Matthew Hood, donations will go to on campus outreach to over 30,000 students including events as well as empowering and equipping future Catholic leaders through bible studies, retreats, and formation opportunities.


In the past year we have helped over 30 families with rent, utilities, food, beds, security deposits, Christmas presents and general needs. Please consider helping us so we can continue to help the needy in our neighborhood. As with most charities, contributions have dropped, but the needs of the poor remain.
Please make checks payable to OLSOS or to SVdP OLSOS
