To share Christ’s love through our faith & service
Star of the Sea (Stella Maris) is a favourite title which mariners have bestowed on the Blessed Virgin Mary whose protection they have always trusted. The title depicts Mary as a beacon to mariners. The name Star of the Sea is aptly applied to Mary, for just as a star emits rays without diminishing its brightness, so the Son is born of the Virgin without changing her integrity.
