Every year, Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) port chaplains and ship visitors bring the joy of Easter to seafarers when they visit ships before and during Eastertide.
This year is no different as they were out in force taking palms, spiritual material and Easter eggs (of course) to the crews.
A lot of the Easter eggs are kindly donated by schools and parishes – thank you everyone of you!
Some seafarers were also taken to Easter Mass. The seafarers really enjoy being able to go because as our Immingham port chaplain Steve Willows says, "…getting to an Easter mass whilst on board doesn’t really happen!"
Here is a selection of Easter photos sent in by our chaplains. You can see more photos and read about our Easter ship visits on our Facebook page here.
