Spiritual support and guidance
If you would like to go to Mass – our chaplains and ship visitors can arrange for this to happen on board, or help take you to the nearest church. We can also provide faith resources, such as our Stella Maris magazine, prayer books and rosaries.
Life at sea can be hard, separation from family and friends for long periods can lead to loneliness and feelings of isolation. Our chaplains can be a shoulder to lean on and are always available for a friendly chat and advice.
How we have helped
When the Malaviya Seven ship was detained in Scotland, the crew were abandoned without wages and unable to return home for nearly 18 months. Stella Maris stepped in to provide much needed support.
“Had it not been for the Stella Maris team, the crew condition would have been far different in the end. There was an implied assurance that as long the Stella Maris was present, justice would be served.“
– Captain Ashish – Malaviya Seven
