New to our Parish
Welcome to Our Lady, Star of the Sea.
Welcome to the Catholic Community of Our Lady Star of the Sea, Howick. We are happy to have you with us. All are welcome here, in the spirit of Jesus. We hope to meet Him in you and that you find Him in us and in those we serve in His name. Your presence is a true treasure and we open our hearts and home to you with a deep sense of hospitality. We hope that you will make yourself at home.
We are a well-established parish, which can seem daunting at first, but we believe it is one of our strengths. We have the ability to draw on the tremendous reservoir of gifts and talents of our people. Our Lady Star of the Sea community is filled with many gifted and talented people who are willing to share their time and talent in a variety of ways. Please get involved in whatever way catches your attention and imagination. If you have a particular talent or interest that is not reflected on this site, please, let us know. We are always looking for new ways for the community to grow.
We take worship, education, service, and community building seriously. We hope our efforts will be of service to you as together we build our common-union in Christ, our brother.
