Our Lady Star of the Sea

Our Global Parish Community

Work in progress


Total Number of Catholics

There are an estimated 1.2 billion Catholics in the world, according to Vatican figures.

What Percentage of the World are Catholics and Christians?

The world’s current population is 7.5 billion plus. So roughly 16% of the World’s population is Catholic.

Some of our parishioner families have their heritage from around the globe so we are a true united nation under God. We have families who originate from China, Germany, Ghana, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Malaysia, Mauritius, Netherlands, Nigeria, Philippines, Poland, Sierra Leone, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, Zambia, Zimbabwe

We'd love to hear about other heritages so we can continue to add flags.
