Annual Stella Maris Mass - 18th September 2018

On Tuesday 18th September, Bishop Philip celebrated the Annual Stella Maris Mass for the Apostleship of the Sea in honour of their patron Our Lady Star of the Sea. During his homily he explained the nautical connection within his Episcopal coat of arms.


Please keep the Apostleship of the Sea and all seafarers in your prayers, through the intercession of Our Lady, Star of the Sea:


O Mary, Star of the Sea, light of every ocean, guide seafarers across all dark and stormy seas that they may reach the haven of peace and light prepared in Him who calmed the sea. As we set forth upon the oceans of the world and cross deserts of our time, show us, O Mary, the fruit of your womb, for without your Son we are lost. Pray that we will never fail on life’s journey, that in heart and mind, word and deed, in days of turmoil and in days of calm, we will always look to Christ and say, ‘Who is this that even wind and sea obey him?’ Our Lady of Peace, pray for us! Bright Star of the Sea, guide us!
