Mary, Star of the Sea Church

A few weeks ago when we were in Baltimore we went to the Mary, Star of the Sea church for mass on Saturday. It was the choice because you could walk to it from the Inner Harbor and we could get down in time to go to the baseball game. The church is planning on celebrating its 150th anniversary. If you want to find old Catholic churches in the United States, one place to find them is in Baltimore.

The church was definitely an antique. It smelled like several old wooden cabinet antiques that I have.

You can see Mary, Star of the Sea (Stella Maris) at the top of the window.

The red haired woman at the foot of the cross below must be St. Mary Magdalene.
