Welcome to Our Lady Star of the Sea in Llandudno
Happy New Year 2022 to all parishioners and friends of OLSS
The start of each new year is a time to reflect on the year just past, and make plans for the future. It holds a special magic, with a promise of new opportunities and the possibility to change our lives for the better.
And given how challenging 2021 has been for us all with COVID-19 dreadful threat, economic crisis, threat of war and conflict and deepening leadership crisis in families and organisations, it feels especially important to express our hopes and dreams for better days ahead in 2022!
May the New Year bring you happiness, peace, and prosperity. Wishing you a joyous 2022! Give wings to your dreams and let them come true in 2022. And remember, if opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door!
Father Innocent Abonyi, MSP
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
– Fr. Innocent
