Apostleship of the Sea

Leaving a gift to Apostleship of the Sea in a Will is a simple way to help us continue our work of providing practical and spiritual support to seafarers. Apostleship of the Sea (also known as Stella Maris) is the official Catholic maritime charity, working in more than 300 ports worldwide. In Britain AoS provides 18 chaplains and 111 volunteer ship visitors, who cover 60 ports. Last year, we carried out over 10,000 visits to ships, and assisted almost 224,000 seafarers. We also provide a growing number of cruise chaplains, especially at Easter and Christmas. On average, one in seven seafarers is helped by a legacy gift. By leaving a gift in your Will, you can help us go even further in the future, and ensure that seafarers receive our support when they most need us.
