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 -
