We are a warm and vibrant Catholic community whose mission is to bring the love of Jesus Christ to all we meet.
Here at Mary Star of the Sea you will find perhaps the most ethnically diverse parish in the entire Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Not only is Mass celebrated here in four languages (English, Spanish, Croatian and Italian) on Sunday, but the traditional ethnic celebrations and devotions of each group as well. Our beautiful church also contains a Perpetual Adoration Chapel (open 24 hours a day, seven days a week).
We are especially proud of our parish high school (9th through 12th grades), which recently expanded into sparkling, brand-new facilities, and of our elementary school (K through 8th grades), both of which are well-known and highly regarded throughout the area. Our Pre-School provides a fun, safe, Catholic environment for children 3-5 years old. Thousands more children have received an excellent formation in the Catholic faith from our Religious Education program or been nurtured in their faith by our Youth Ministry program.
Our outreach to the local area includes a Christian Care ministry, dedicated to serving the needs of the disadvantaged, and the Apostleship of the Sea, which ministers to sailors and those working at the nearby ports. We are also very proud of our newly revitalized Knights of Columbus council, as well as many other parish groups and societies.
If you would like to become better acquainted with us, or if you are interested in getting involved in one of our many ways of serving the community, please explore our website. Contact information for our parish staff, our schools, and all our outreach programs can be found on our site. We would be happy to help you in any way we can and we look forward to your involvement in our community.
