Inverness Catenian President Peter McCann has hailed the work of Stella Maris – and made them his nominated Charity for the year.
Peter, who is originally from the seaside town of Helensburgh in Argyll and Bute, was thrilled to offer the support of his Circle in the Highlands as they made a recent £500 donation. Peter said:
“We are delighted to give our full support to Stella Maris.
“It’s such an important charity offering practical and spiritual support.
“We’ve all witnessed recently so many seafarers still stranded across the world and the great work that Stella Maris are doing to help them.”
Peter is pictured above displaying the new Stella Maris flag, with the Moray Firth in the background.
The Inverness Catenian Circle has several former seafarers within its membership who have experienced the dangers of work at sea.
The Inverness Circle is a local branch of The Catenian Association – an international association of Catholic laymen who are committed to faith, family and friendship.
