God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that all
who believe in Him might not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

Welcome to Star of the Sea

The Parish is where the Church lives and comes alive in worship and service. A parish is a place of faith, action and hope. It is a community of believers in Jesus Christ; the good news for all people.

 

It is a place of proclamation and celebration of unique gifts and charismas richly given by God for His glory and the salvation of souls.

 

It is a place where all feel at home with God; in a praying, loving, and embracing community.

 

It is a community when the definition of Church given by James Joyce is a reality "Here comes everybody"; and we might add - 'home'. To everyone, Catholics and non-Catholics alike; we extend a warm welcome.

PASTOR'S CHRISTMAS LETTER

 

Dear Parishioners and Friends in Christ,

 

I wish you all enjoy the blessings of Christmas this year and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2015- filled with God at work in your lives. Reflecting upon the past year together, we have some truly wonderful achievements in 2014. We have a tremendous pool of talent active in our people exemplified in our wonderful Parish Council, Finance Committee, Capital Committee, Women’s Catholic League, Legion of Mary, Altar Flower Committee and the wonderful lectors, greeters, ushers, servers, Eucharistic ministers and those engaged in liturgy and music. Many others volunteer in promoting social events or in anonymous roles known only to a smiling Jesus! All of our parishioners enrich us and, as a community, we have a real sense that we can overcome all obstacles because God IS at work within our lives. This sincere belief is rewarded in this wonderful Season of Peace wherein we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.


Let us eagerly welcome the Lord Jesus into our hearts this Christmas! Imagine that we, as modern innkeepers, warmly receive the Holy Family and celebrate their being with us. Let us allow our Savior and Christ to be born within each of us anew! In keeping with this experienced sense of personal and communal wonder and delight at the Lord’s Nativity, we have modified our normal schedule for Christmas. The entire schedule is on the reverse of this letter.


On behalf of the entire parish staff and community, I wish you a very hearty blessing and best wishes for your Merry Christmas!

 

Fr. Mike
Pastor St. Mary, Star of the Sea Church
