Reaching out to confined seafarers

As Catholics around the nation prepare to honour the work of seafarers through the annual Sea Sunday Appeal, the local Stella Maris centre is making a touching gesture to let crews know they are “not alone” and “our thoughts and prayers are with you always”.


Seafarers Sunday

The work of seafarers and Catholics across the country who provide spiritual, social and material support for them will be celebrated throughout the Church in Australia on July 14.


Warm welcome for Sea Sunday

Dozens of Catholic chaplains and managers who work in Australian ports – and the tens of thousands of people who support their work financially – are being reminded of the scriptural imperative to “always welcome a stranger” in the lead-up to Sea Sunday next month.
