Maris Stella Church began as a Mission of St. Paul's Church in 1928. In 1961, Maris Stella Parish was established. In 1983, the present church was built, under the leadership of the pastor, Bishop James L. Schad. Maris Stella, a seashore parish beautifully located in the heart of Avalon, ministers to the spiritual needs of the local Catholic community, whose population burgeons during the summer months with vacationers and part-time residents.
