Apostleship of the Sea were most humble recipients following the passing of a long-serving Scottish seafarer.
The funeral of Denis Sullivan took place recently in Our Lady of Lourdes RC Church, Dunfermline, where Fr Kevin Dow conducted the service.
Afterwards, there was a retiral collection in the Fife coastal parish from which the proceeds were shared between AoS and St Vincent De Paul, with the seafaring charity receiving a very generous cheque for £300.
Denis’ surviving wife, Jenny, is pictured with Deacon Joe O’Donnell, Senior Regional Port Chaplain for Scotland, at Grangemouth Seafaring Centre where container ships arrive on a regular basis.
Joe said, “We’re so grateful to Denis’ family for their kindness. He was a seafarer for such a long time and obviously recognised the work of Apostleship of the Sea.”
