Dundee University Catholic Society are keen to develop their relationship with Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) after soaking up the charity’s message recently.
In a talk entitled 'Why is charity important in our faith development?' at St Andrew’s Cathedral, Dundee, AoS Scottish Development Officer, Euan McArthur, joined students from various nationalities to share with them some stories including the plight of Croatian seafarer Zlatko Kosack.
Zlatko had just returned home following weeks of support from Joe O’Donnell, AoS Clyde port chaplain, in hospital in Glasgow having suffered severe burns while on board an oil tanker in Grangemouth.
Joined by Fr Gregory Murphy from St Pius X, Dundee and Deacon Charlie Hendry from St Peter and Paul’s, Dundee the students had no shortage of questions before offering AoS a return visit in the future.
Vice-President, Erin Timmoney, the daughter of Parish Contact Jim Timmoney of Our Lady and St Mark’s Alexandria, said, "We all really enjoyed hearing about the work of Apostleship of the Sea, and would welcome an update talk in the coming months."
Jim said, "It’s great to see AoS spreading their message to some of the brightest young minds in the country. These are the future leaders of society."
