Welcome to the website of St Mary Star of the Sea, West Melbourne. The Internet has opened a new door to our church, whose century old doors have welcomed so many parishioners and visitors over the years. If you are one of them, you will know how St Mary’s West Melbourne has a special beauty and nobility that invites those who enter to prayer, or at least to admiration and reflection, inspired by many works of religious art largely centered on Christ and his blessed mother, Mary.
If you have not had the opportunity to personally visit, this website allows you to familiarise yourself with this fascinating house of prayer and worship, its history, its most significant features, and its on-going life.
