our lamb Marina calls out to You,  O Jesus, in a loud voice:


“I love You, my Bridegroom,

and in seeking You I endure suffering.
In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You,
and I died so that I might live with You.
Accept me as a pure sacrifice,
for I have offered myself in love.”


Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

JOIN US FOR MATINS + DIVINE LITURGY IN HONOUR OF SAINT MARINA

17th July 2021

A patron saint is our intercessor and advocate to God.

We look to their lives as inspiration, and we seek their prayers when we need help. 

St Marina was only fifteen years old when she martyred. Her heroic life is an inspiring force for all Christians. St Marina's story is one that inspires courage to run to Christ through all adversity and strength to boldly confess our faith. ​
