On a recent ship-visit to the vessel car-carrier Glovis Courage, Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea) ship visitors from the Port of Southampton encountered a tremendously warm welcome from the crew.
Some of crew were eager to download movies using the Stella Maris MiFi device, while others took copies of this month’s Stella Maris magazine.
Always a favourite, Peter Giles one of the volunteer ship visitor brought along some Toblerone chocolates for all the crew.
Experiencing his very first ship-visit was Charles Stuart our newest volunteer to Stella Maris Southampton & Southern Ports Region. (Welcome on board Charles!)
The Glovis Courage after departing Southampton is scheduled to visit ports in the United States, Mexico and then will continue on to various ports in the Far East.
Please remember to pray for the seafarers of this vessel as they have not had Mass for many weeks. Our Lady Star of the Sea (Stella Maris)….pray for them.
