Our Lady Star of the Sea Parish - The Way Forward
Our doors are open to all. Members of Our Lady Star of the Sea welcome all to our Parish Community.
We are a welcoming community of prayer, healing, and friendship.
Our Eucharist is a celebration of the ‘Risen Saviour’.
You are invited to join us for our Sunday Liturgies, filled with the energy of the Spirit.
Our call is to love and serve. We leave our Sunday Liturgies with these words in mind as the way the Gospel calls us to spread the Word and to live our faith in our daily lives.
We intend our multi-cultural parish to be an inter-connected community with vibrant ministries, centred in Christ, that is a place of faith, hope, and love, and that emphasizes our baptismal call to love and serve within the parish and beyond.
Our Long-Range Plan
Our Lady Star of the Sea’s vision for the future is an ongoing and dynamic process. This process will include the review and implementation of continually evolving technologies to increase communication among parish-ioners, ministries and staff to better serve the needs of the community and to ensure sharing of ideas.
The core Catholic function of the parish is to provide Eucharistic Celebrations, Sacraments and healing to meet the needs of our community.
Providing core Catholic services (e.g. Mass, Sacraments, Healing, Vocations) is a critical component to living out our Mission Statement that we are ‘To share Christ’s love through our faith and service’.
A welcoming spirit and engaging worship have been hall-marks of the parish community since its founding days. They are central to our response in answering the call of the Gospel to transform the world.
We invite and welcome new members to our faith comm-unity to experience and share our vibrant liturgy, the sacraments and parish activities.
New technologies are used to support parish comm-unication, ministry, and outreach programmes to spread the healing power of the Eucharist.
Our Lady Star of the Sea has been blessed with a memb-ership that is diverse in age, gender, and cultures. Our ministries and programmes provide an environment to bring people together within this diverse community and to provide for the spiritual needs of all members. In this way we experience a living and joyful example of Christ’s love & compassion.
