Sea Sunday

The Apostleship of the Sea is the Church's ministry to seafarers, many of whom are away from their homes and families for weeks or even months on end, often carrying out a dangerous job. It provides chaplaincy support and facilities both on-board and in port where they can find spiritual and emotional help.

We pray for all who sail on the seas: For those who live apart from their loved ones to work in the fishing industry, the merchant navy, the armed forces: And for those who flee their homes by sea, willing to embrace great danger, in the hope of finding safety and asylum in other countries.

May God protect them all and keep them safe.
