Pope Francis affirmed Apostleship of the Sea’s ministry as churches around the world celebrated Sea Sunday on July 13.The Holy Father said;
“Today we celebrate Sea Sunday. I turn my thoughts to seafarers, fishermen and their families. I urge Christian communities, particularly the coastal ones, to be attentive and sensitive towards them.”
Catholic churches in Great Britain and around the world marked Sea Sunday this year by remembering seafarers and praying for them, their families and those who support them.
Proceeds from the Sea Sunday collection at Mass will ensure the work of AoS with seafarers and fishermen can continue.
This year for the first time, supporters were encouraged to think about leaving a gift to Apostleship of the Sea in their Will
