Video tour of St. Mary Star of the Sea Church and Tubman Chapel in Dorchester County

The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington has released a new video tour of the original St. Mary Star of the Sea Church, now called the Tubman Chapel; and the current St. Mary Star of the Sea, located across Hoopers Island Road from the original church, in Golden Hill, Dorchester County, Maryland.

The video is the fifth in a series featuring historic churches of the Diocese of Wilmington and may be viewed by clicking on the link below:

Other churches included the St. Francis Xavier Shrine (Old Bohemia) in Warwick, Cecil County, Maryland; Old St. Joseph's Mission Church near Cordova, in Talbot County, Maryland; St. Peter the Apostle in Queenstown, Queen Anne's County, Maryland; and the Cathedral of St. Peter in Wilmington, Delaware. Additionally, the diocese produced and released a short video on the life of Maryland Eastern Shore native, the Rev. Paul Wattson, SA, (1863-1940) - also known as Father Paul of Graymoor - who may be the first person born in what is now the Diocese, to be a canonized saint.

All these videos are available on the Diocese of Wilmington's YouTube channel - and on the diocesan 150th anniversary page -

Book Club
Mere Christianity
by C. S. Lewis

The SJB book club will meet in the family center after the 12:05 Mass on Monday, September 16 to discuss Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis.

In this book, originally aired as a series of radio broadcasts in 1943, Lewis explores the common ground upon which all Christians stand together: original sin, the transcendent Creator God, and the divinity of Jesus as well as his atonement and bodily resurrection.

All are welcome. If you plan to attend, please click this link to register.
