This is a time when the church prays for all who live and work at sea. Without them, we would not have most of the items we rely on for daily living. Even during a pandemic, seafarers continue to bring into our ports products that sustain our population and economy. Most of them are absent from their local faith communities and family for months on end in order to provide for their loved ones.
The national Sea Sunday Appeal is for Stella Maris, Apostleship of the Sea, the official maritime welfare agency of the Catholic Church. It supports seafarers both practically and spiritually. We commend this cause to you as we are a Diocese with a major port and many, many seafarers coming in and out.
