Mary Star of the Sea

Among parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, Mary Star of the Sea Church in San Pedro has a unique position: set on a hill near the Pacific, its beautiful symbol - a 10-foot bronze statue of Mary - atop its bell tower, her arms outstretched toward the Port of Los Angeles.

This visible symbol - the Blessed Mother Mary welcoming both the seaman returning to his home port and visitors from near and far - captures well the welcoming, "reaching out" spirit of Mary Star of the Sea parish.
