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.
A prayer for our military men and women
O God of Mercy,
We beg you now to protect in a special way
those who are defending us and the Country we love.
Bless them and take care of them.
If they are tired, give them strength.
If they are wounded and suffering, give them comfort.
If they are lonely, touch them with Your gentle hand
and let them know that You are near them.
And if it be Your holy will that they should give up
their lives for us, grant them a peaceful death
and a home with You in heaven.
Hasten the day, dear Lord, when along with them
and their families, we may all enjoy the blessings
of peace once more.
