Every year churches around the world celebrate Sea Sunday, which falls on 9th July in 2023. It is a day for people to come together to pray for seafarers and fishers, and thank them for the vital role they play in all of our lives.
Please remember seafarers and fishers in your prayers this Sunday. Many parishes will hold a second collection for Catholic charity Stella Maris (formerly called Apostleship of the Sea).
This organisation provides pastoral and spiritual support to seafarers and fishers, and also helps them to keep in touch with loved ones when away from home.
Your prayers and support are greatly needed: to support the charity’s work, please go to www.stellamaris.org.uk/donate
