Coronavirus: Urgent Appeal for Seafarers

Here is a message from Fr John Lavers, Stella Maris Director of Chaplaincy.

*** Urgent Appeal for Seafarers ****

Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea) has seen a dramatic impact on the life of seafarers due to the spread of the coronavirus.

Many seafarers are being restricted to ships and are unable to visit shops and obtain personal items.

Please remember it is the seafarers who bring to us most of our food and consumer goods….we need to now help them.

Stella Maris is appealing to the Faithful for the following items:
* woolly hats
* socks
* underwear
* jumpers
* toothpaste & toothbrushes
* soap & shampoo
* deodorant
* biscuits & chocolates

Stella Maris will ensure that these items will be delivered to the seafarers as care packages.

The Faithful are encouraged to bring donated items to their local parish office.

Stella Maris chaplains and volunteers will come and collect the donated items from the local parishes. Thank you for your help.

Our Lady Star of the Sea…..Pray for Seafarers…!
