St John’s Barrhead Sea Sunday

Apostleship of the Sea were humbled by the generosity of parishioners from St John the Baptist Church, Barrhead, Scotland recently as Sea Sunday raised a wonderful total of £1,108. 
              Euan McArthur, Scottish Development Officer, and volunteer John Hood covered all four Masses in the Paisley Diocese parish and were given a warm welcome by Fr. Joseph Burke and all who attended over the course of the weekend. 
              A native of Inverclyde, Fr Burke praised the work of AoS and reminded parishioners that much of their everyday goods arrive in this country by sea. 
              He said, “Coming from Greenock, I know the importance of seafarers and shipping to our overall economy. We are very happy to support this tremendous charity and the excellent work they do in supporting those who work for a living at sea.” 
              Euan said, “We would like to thank Fr Burke and all the parishioners at St John’s very much for their generosity. It is greatly appreciated.”
