Stella Maris Parish
The town of St. George had been a centre of Catholic worship since 1849, with services held in the barracks Chapel of the British Regiment. When the U.S. Base was established at Kindley Field, the Catholic Chaplain ministered to the Catholics of the area. However, it would take almost another hundred years before construction of a Catholic Church in St. George would begin. Stella Maris is located in the heart of historic St. George and is the smallest Catholic Church in Bermuda. On the first Sunday in February 1948, Archbishop McNally of Halifax, Nova Scotia, blessed the Church and dedicated it to the Blessed Mother under the title, Stella Maris, Star of the Sea. In the holy year of 2000, Bishop Robert J. Kurtz, C.R. proclaimed Stella Maris Church as the Marian Center of the Diocese.
Rev. Joseph F.H. Morley was born in Bermuda on 15th March 1959. Fr. Joseph graduated from Mt. St. Agnes Academy in 1978. He attended St. Leo’s College in Florida.
