Preparing for Sea Sunday 9th July


Apostleship of the Sea is the maritime agency of the Catholic Church.

Its teams of chaplains and ship visitors in ports around the country provide practical help and pastoral care to seafarers, who are often thousands of miles away from their families back home.


And so, next week is Sea Sunday, when the Church prays for all those  who live and work at sea. There will be a second collection for Apostleship of the Sea, the official maritime welfare agency of the Catholic Church.

It provides practical and spiritual support to seafarers visiting our ports.

As it is dependent on voluntary donations, please give generously.

For more information about its work,
