Our Holy Father, Pope Francis,
opened a special
“Jubilee Year of Mercy”
on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2015, the fiftieth anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council.
Bishop Sullivan has designated Our Lady Star of the Sea as one of the “Jubilee Churches” which features a “holy door”.
The "Holy Door" at Our Lady Star of the Sea:
- is open daily from 7:00AM until 2:00PM during the winter and early spring months
- in the summer months the Church is open from 7:00AM until dark
- The "Holy Door" is located on the Ocean Street side of the Church and is appropriately designated
- Mass is celebrated Monday through Friday at 11:00AM
- Confessions are heard weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 11:30AM and on Saturday afternoon at 3:00 - 3:30PM
If your parish wishes to make a special pilgrimage to the Church and would like to have a Prayer Service or Liturgy, we will be more than happy to accomodate your priests and your Parish.
Please call the Parish Office between 9:00AM and 4:00PM during the week to make arrangements. (609)884-5312.
