Life Remodeled

“Effective witness to Jesus has these attractive qualities: joy, hospitality and generous service to the poor and the marginalized.”
Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron Unleash the Gospel Pastoral Letter

Life Remodeled is a Detroit-based nonprofit that invests approximately $5 million in cash, labor and materials into one Detroit neighborhood each year. Projects are determined by the community’s needs and vision. Life Remodeled partners assist in three areas: Remodeling a school or other community asset, repairing owner-occupied homes, and mobilizing 12,000 volunteers to clean up 360 city blocks in six days.

This year the project centers around the neighborhood surrounding Sacred Heart Major Seminary, St. Charles Lwanga Parish and St. Moses the Black. Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan, Sacred Heart Major Seminary and the Archdiocese of Detroit invite Catholics to put their faith into action through this opportunity to perform Christian service in Detroit.


Clean-up days are July 31-August 5.  Clean up activities include mowing grass, cutting overgrown bushes, removing debris, and some painting.  You are encouraged to sign up for a half day, a whole day, 2 days, etc.
