Shrine of St Mary


The Parish is fundraising to build a new shrine which will have a marble statue of St Mary Star of the Sea as the centrepiece of a water fountain.

The fountain will be surrounded by a seating area and landscaped gardens, providing parishioners and visitors with a place of reflection and prayer. The shrine will also be a focal point for small community gatherings, and wedding and other special occasion photography.
