This month, we remember Our Lady as the Star of the Sea.
This chosen title for July is Star of the Sea because on the second Sunday of July we celebrate Sea Sunday. On Sea Sunday, the Catholic Church, along with other churches, remembers seafarers and prays for them, their families and those who support them.
Pray with us.
You chose Mary to be the mother of your son and so our mother.
This month we remember her as Star of the Sea, a guiding light,
a beacon, showing us the way through the storms of life to safely reach her son, Jesus.
We hold in prayer all seafarers who often have dangerous journeys
as they work to supply our needs.
We hold in prayer the work of the Apostleship of the Sea who support them.
We make these prayers in Jesus’ name.
To commemorate those at sea, we reflected together quietly and listened to the sounds of the ocean while we made origami boats, to symbolise our thoughts being with those at sea.
