Miami, Florida: The Stella Maris Catholic Center at the Port of Miami
About the Cruise Port of Miami:
The Port of Miami is a bustling one, and one of the largest in the U.S., both for cruise passengers and mariners alike. Due to the efforts of volunteers a place has been created for the spiritual needs of Catholics.
About the Chapel at the Cruise Port of Miami:
The chapel includes the Stations of the Cross which were taken from the now-closed St. Francis Xavier Church in Overtown. The wooden altar was hand made by local craftsmen and has a mariners emblem with the inscription “Apostolatus Maris”.
Other statues of Our Lady of Mercy and St. Joseph have been donated.
The chapel is open 7 days a week from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for prayer. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is at noon on Thursdays. There is also a priest on call for emergencies.
Mass is held on Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. giving those who have sailings (or are dis-embarking) on Saturdays the opportunity to attend Mass.
The Catholic center offers free wi-fi and Internet access in addition to the chapel.
