"Stella Maris Church at Sunset" Sullivans Island, SC


Historic Stella Maris Catholic Church on Sullivan's Island bathed in the glow of sunset is my painting subject today.
The Church's distinctive bell tower with a statue of Mary looking out to sea is a Sullivan's Island landmark.

The congregation is so large, it overflows the church into the church hall on Sunday morning. It's also a popular choice for wedding ceremonies.


The present church was built of bricks recycled from nearby Fort Moultrie when it was damaged in the War Between the States. For over 100 years, ships sailing past Sullivan's Island have been reminded of both the destructive forces of war and the power of redemption by God's grace as they pass Fort Moultrie and Stella Maris Church at this same spot.

Please see my painting of Stella Maris from the harbor -"Stella Maris from the Sea". Scroll to the blog posting for Tues. April 10. That is an inspiring view - The statue on the bell tower rising above the trees with blessings for all.
