Seafarers and fishers play a vital role in all of our lives, but they often work in difficult, hazardous conditions. In the last year, more crews have been abandoned by their employers than ever before. Many are still being denied the right to leave their ships for even a short break away from the relentless noise and pressure onboard. Many are reporting more stress and poorer mental health.
Sea Sunday is next week 10th July. It is when the Church prays for all who live and work at sea. Your support will make a big difference to seafarers and fishers in need. The Stella Maris is a maritime agency of the Catholic Church and its team of chaplains provide practical help and pastoral care to workers at sea all over the world. They ask for your help with the second collection that takes place next week. Gift Aid envelopes are available at the back of the Church.
