Celebrating 140 Years of St Mary Star of the Sea in Gerringong

August 16, 2022

Parishioners and their friends attended St Mary Star of the Sea’s Gerringong yesterday (Sunday, 14 August) to celebrate 140 wonderful years of community worship in their “church on the hill”.

The theme was “Connecting to the history of our Church – St Mary’s”. After a Mass concelebrated by Bishop Brian, Fr Chris Roberts and Mgr Graham Schmitzer, all were invited to attend a walking tour of the church building and the grounds to commemorate the history of the Church, and a building that was built and donated by parishioners from the past and present. A shared brunch in the meeting room followed, which included the presentation of a commemorative gift for diocesan archives to Bishop Brian, and happy birthday wishes to Fr Chris and Mgr Graham, who will be celebrating milestone birthdays this month.
