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.


  1. I like the angle of this photo with the tree adjacent to the steeple. The statue of Mary does look like a welcoming symbol against the open sky.

  2. I'm searching your blog. Have you ever done an entry on Point Fermin? I can't find it if you did, so if yes, I'd love to see it. If not, I'd love to see it! :-)


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
