New to Our Parish?

 

 

Our Lady Star of the Sea is a welcoming faith-filled communion of Roman Catholics, joyfully celebrating the Word of God and the Eucharist, continually growing in the image of Christ.  Our mission, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, is to proclaim and share the Good News, by modeling our lives after Mary in Love and Service to God and Humanity.

 

Welcome to Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish!

 

I hope you will find this website helpful in learning about our faith community and the spiritual enrichment that we are prepared to offer you.

 

Our Mission Statement embodies our focus as a welcoming body of Roman Catholics who proclaim and share the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ while modeling our lives after our patron, Mary, the Mother of God. We have a rich history of more than fifty years serving the needs of this area and beyond.

 

You will see that our list of Spiritual Offerings is extensive, encompassing worship, education, enrichment, and service. We strive to be a welcoming community offering programs for all types of individuals (children, teens, adults, singles, widows, widowers), families, and ethnic groups. This is built on our belief that faith formation is a lifelong process. In addition to practicing Roman Catholics, we welcome Catholics from other Rites, non-practicing Catholics, fallen-away Catholics, and non-Catholics, and we strive to respond to the concerns of all.

 

We also believe that it is our responsibility as a parish and as individual parishioners to spread the Good News of our Catholic faith to others. In becoming evangelists, we in turn deepen and strengthen our own faith commitment. The “Our Invitation to You” section lists many of the reasons people have for contacting us. Perhaps you have similar thoughts or interests.

Whatever your situation, I invite you to contact us.

 

In Christ,
Msgr. Gary Smetanka
