Welcome to Our Lady Star of the Sea

Whether you’re a visitor to our wonderful area or a local parishioner, a heartfelt welcome and thank you for visiting our webpage. As a Catholic church on the Grand Strand, we strive to be a devout Catholic community open to all. We have a wide variety of services and organizations available to you, which can be found within our website. More importantly, we provide the opportunity for you to gather with us in worship and fellowship to fulfill the Lord’s mission.

We are a Roman Catholic community in the Diocese of Charleston serving the spiritual needs of Catholics on the Grand Strand.  We do this by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Liturgy, Sacraments, Outreach, Catholic Education, and above all a visible love of God and neighbor.

In order to give the opportunity for all parishioners to schedule a Mass Intention for their loved ones and to accommodate recently deceased individuals, the Mass book will now only be open for three months at a time.

Since our 2022 Mass Book is already half full for January through June, we have no alternative but to close the book until January, 2022. At that time, only Mass Intentions for January through March 2022 will be taken. Going forward, the Mass Intention Book will open on the first day of each quarter for intentions for the following three months. All requests must be made in person, not by phone.

Masses will continue to be scheduled with Fr. ‘Rick LaBrecque and Fr. Paul Richardson to be said in their homes. You will not be able to attend the Mass, but we can provide you with a Mass card.

If you have any questions, please call Vicki in the office (843-249-2356). With this new policy, we are hoping to provide a better opportunity for everyone and more suitable timetable to arrange for Mass intentions.
