Our Lady of the Seas Catholic Church

Our Mission Statement

We are a welcoming people called to celebrate the presence of God among us. As members of a Sacramental Church we are challenged to be signs of healing, compassion, and love for all who seek God's blessings.  As people of the Light we proclaim the Good News of Jesus through daily living in service to one another. Empowered by the Holy Spirit and nourished with the Holy Eucharist we reach out to those who are in need, the poor and the lonely, those who have no church, and those who desire to be welcomed back to the Church. Together let us profess our faith, build up our hope, and share our love.

Our Lady of the Seas Catholic Mission was originally formed sometime during the 1930ís when visiting priests would hold services in private residences. This method prevailed until the 1956 when the Naval Base commander allowed services to be held at the Buxton Naval facility. The base eventually was turned over to the Coast Guard and services were held on base in the recreation center.
You can now follow us on Facebook at Our Lady of the Seas Catholic Parish.

About Our Lady


Our statue of Our Lady of the Seas shown to the left of this page was based on an idea conceived by Father Andre' and developed by him and the parishioners. The statue was designed by Winterich and Associates of Cleveland, Ohio, and hand-carved in wood by Demetz Art Studio in Ortisei, Italy.


The beautiful young mother - with sand and seashells at her feet, the sea breeze blowing through her hair - holds the globe of the earth for her son.  His right hand firmly grasps his mother's hair lest he tumble from her arms as he reaches out to touch the seas of the globe.  Beneath his hand can be seen Hatteras Island, the rest of the Outer Banks, and the North Carolina coastline.


This statue is a "one of a kind". There is not another one like it in the world.


The mother gives human life to the child; the child gives eternal life to his mother and to all those who would follow his Way.
