Apostleship of the Sea were given a warm reception as they spent an evening with St Aloysius’ Public Life Group recently in Glasgow.
The group, which meets monthly in the parish and focuses on areas of Justice and Peace, were interested to hear about the current issues facing seafarers including fishermen in Scotland and further afield.
Euan McArthur, Scottish Development Officer, spoke to members prior to their monthly meeting and answered questions about some of the concerns raised by those present on the night.
One member, Betty Queen, said, "We can only imagine what it’s like to work in such difficult conditions at sea. Apostleship of the Sea are a vital charity in helping seafarers and it’s reassuring to know they are there on the frontline."
AoS have been invited to deliver another such talk to the Justice and Peace Group of St Margaret’s parish, Lochgilphead in Argyll and the Isles in the near future.
