St. Mary, Star of the Sea (Baltimore, Maryland)

St. Mary, Star of the Sea is a Roman Catholic Church in the Federal Hill South neighborhood of Baltimore, Maryland. The church venerates Stella Maris, Our Lady, Star of the Sea, and carries a beacon atop its spire to welcome sailors to the Port of Baltimore.

In the late 1800s, the South Baltimore peninsula was populated by immigrant Irish and German communities. The expanding population worked primarily as sailors, shipbuilders, and workers on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad around the point. A direct passenger rout ran by Norddeutscher Lloyd between Bremen to Port Covington on the south end of the peninsula became a big source of population influx. The two communities established parishes to serve their rapidly growing numbers.
