Welcome to Stella Maris Family of Parishes
St. Mary – St. Peter – St. Thomas More – St. Bernadette Catholic Churches

A united region of Catholic believers who seek to carry Christ’s light into our southern Clermont community, our homes, and our hearts.

South Clermont Catholic Region is warm, welcoming, active, and involved. We provide a wide variety of ministries for you to explore. Be a vibrant member of the South Clermont Catholic Region!

South Clermont Catholic Region, the pastoral region of St. Mary, St. Peter, St. Thomas More and St. Bernadette welcomes you whether you are a visitor or a parishioner!  We invite you to join our parish family as we sing God’s praises, listen to His Word, and go out into our neighborhoods to share His joy. 

As a Catholic parish community of faith, the Mass is central to our lives.

Come early to Mass and/or remain after Mass to spend more time with our Lord.

Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit

O Lord Jesus Christ,

Who, before ascending into heaven, did promise to send the Holy Spirit to finish Your work in the souls of Your Apostles and Disciples,
deign to grant the same Holy Spirit to me that He may perfect in my soul, the work of Your grace and Your love.

Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom that I may despise the perishable things of this world and aspire only after the things that are eternal,
the Spirit of Understanding to enlighten my mind with the light of Your divine truth,
the Spirit of Counsel that I may ever choose the surest way of pleasing God and gaining heaven,
the Spirit of Fortitude that I may bear my cross with You and that I may overcome with courage all the obstacles that oppose my salvation,
the Spirit of Knowledge that I may know God and know myself and grow perfect in the science of the Saints,
the Spirit of Piety that I may find the service of God sweet and amiable,
and the Spirit of Fear that I may be filled with a loving reverence towards God and may dread in any way to displease Him.

Mark me, dear Lord, with the sign of Your true disciples and animate me in all things with Your Spirit.

Amen.

Our Father…. 

Hail Mary…. 

Glory Be …..

No one denies what everyone knows, for nature herself teaches it: that God is the Creator of the universe, and that it is good, and that it belongs to humanity by the free gift of its Creator. But there is a vast difference between the corrupted state and the state of primal purity, just as there is a vast difference between Creator and the corruptor. … We ourselves, though we’re guilty of every sin, are not just a work of God: we’re image. Yet we have cut ourselves off from our Creator in both soul and body. Did we get eyes to serve lust, the tongue to speak evil, ears to hear evil, a throat for gluttony, a stomach to be gluttony’s ally, hands to do violence, genitals for unchaste excesses, feet for an erring life? Was the soul put in the body to think up traps, fraud, and injustice? I don’t think so.
