“Faith in action is love—and love in action is service.”

The Catholic Church exercises its freedom to serve others in order to improve the lives of Michiganders. How?

Whether through the Catholic charitable organizations that provide essential services, the Catholic schools that prepare students to achieve their dreams, or through the Catholic health care system, which save lives and nurtures health, the Catholic Church has a vibrant impact on communities. The Church provides educational services such as schools; health care services such as hospitals, hospice, and homes for the terminally ill; charitable services such as food pantries, meal programs, personal needs closets, employment training, immigration and refugee services, foster care and adoption services, and counseling.

“It is important that today, as in the past, the voice of faith continue to be heard, for it is a voice of fraternity and love, which tries to bring out the best in each person and in each society.”

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.”
