Stella Maris welfare services to seafarers and fishers continue to be active

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT OUR WELFARE SERVICES TO PEOPLE OF THE SEA

Stella Maris’ (Apostleship of the Sea) welfare services to seafarers and fishers continue to be active in the UK and overseas during this Coronavirus pandemic.

While our chaplains and ship visitors have been instructed to stop ship visiting immediately until further notice, our support for seafarers has not ended and our chaplains and ship visitors continue to make themselves available to support the People of the Sea via social media, email, mobile phone and WhatsApp.

Our chaplains are putting together support packages for the People of the Sea comprising faith materials (particularly important for Christian seafarers as we approach Easter), basic toiletries, chocolate, woolly hats and other useful items.

Over the course of the coming days and weeks Stella Maris will also be providing useful information and signposting seafarers and fishers to appropriate resources so they can stay safe, well and positive throughout this uncertain time.

We would like to reassure the People of the Sea and all those working in the maritime industry of our prayers for them at this time.
