Welcome to the website of the Catholic Church of Our Lady Star of the Sea, Llandudno.
Introduction to Our Parish Website
We are very pleased that you have come to our website, whether you are an existing parishioner seeking information about what we are doing in these post-lockdown times, or someone who has no connection to our community, but is seeking for information about the Catholic Church, or about its local presence in our parish, possibly with an interest in joining our community. Or any other reason !
You will find, on this site, listings of all our Masses and service times, and details of the wide range of activities that would normally happen in our beautiful Church community.
Our hearts are open, and the life of prayer and worship continues despite the terrible time the world is living through now. We are gradually reinstating some of the activities we had pre-pandemic. We are also strictly observing the coronavirus guidelines and advise provided by Wales and by our health experts.
I am available on the phone most of the day to offer basic church information, spiritual advice and solace, and home or hospital visits when needed. You are welcome to telephone the Church or presbytery at any time of your choice. You may also choose to send us an email instead.
We have very close and direct contact with the other Christian churches in the town, with other faith groups, with William Davies Catholic Primary School, and with Sisters of Loretto at Loretto Centre located at Abbey Road, Llandudno, LL30 2El.
Please explore this website to see what we do in normal circumstances, and do not hesitate to get in touch if there is anything we can help you with. You are also welcome to get involved and offer your gifts or talents in the service of God, church and community.

Music: Our Parish Musicians
In our parish we are lucky to have Ashleigh Williams (our Parish Musical Director), she runs our youth choirs, and our Saturday vigil mass choir where she often leads our sung Mass with our wonderful organist John Liddon-Few. Every Saturday evening John lifts the roof off of our church with his incredible organ playing, he brings a whole range of emotions to our prayers and hymns, having a sung Mass in our church has proven to be popular within the parish and with our visitors.
We also have the talented Ireneusz Siwy who plays the organ for us on Sunday Mornings and other important Masses, not only does he perform for us each week but he also plays outside of church. If you are interested in him playing the organ for you you can contact him on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Photography: Our Parish Photographer
Barbara Marta Smok – Photographer
After more than twenty years of office work and being an amateur and families photographer, I decided to pursue my life passion and become a professional photographer.
My company, BMS Art, has been on the business market for 5 years. My ideas and enthusiasm together with experience and professional education of Art and Design Photography (A level), Creative Arts FdA Photography and BA (Hons) Arts in Photography have allowed me to realise my dream and do it as best as possible.
“Make visible what, without you might perhaps never have been seen.”

BMS Art PHOTOGRAPHY
Established in Llandudno UK in 2018. The company helps businesses and brands bring their products and services to life through creative, professional photography. It also offers a high level of customer service to ensure that clients feel valued and eager to work with us again. I specialize in portraits, so I am happy to do Art Wedding Photography and Personal or Private Portraitures.
I love people and I love their positive reactions when they look at themselves in the photographs.
I enjoy experiencing all emotions with them during the process of our work together.
I always focus on quality, not quantity.
Please take a look at the new images for the Stella Maris Parish Centre and the recent Parish Church images.
Can you help?
Keeping our Church, presbytery, and parish hall warm, paying the lighting and electricity bill, fixing the roof when it leaks, supporting our diocese and taking care of many one-off and minor bills for the everyday running of our beautiful parish only happens, thanks to your generosity. We don’t get any money from the council or the Vatican! Perhaps you could consider setting up a standing order, or signing a gift aid form to support the running costs of our parish. At this challenging time, it won’t be possible for everyone to help in this way, but if you can, you’ll find the parish bank details in the newsletter. You can also contact the parish on either the email email@example.com or ring our parish office on 01492877778. Thank you. You may choose to make a one off donation or leave a legacy for us. We remain ever so grateful for the generosity of people like you who have kept our Church going over the years and centuries. God rewards a cheerful giver. The heart does not forget. Good deeds retain their place in our treasured memories forever.

OLSS Parish Prayer
Father in Heaven, pour out your Spirit upon the people of Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church, Llandudno. Grant us a new vision of your glory, a new experience of your power, a new faithfulness to your word, and a new consecration to your service, so that your love may grow among us and that our love may be sincere. Show us the way ahead, so that your kingdom may come, through Christ Our Lord.” Amen.
