In advance of Sea Sunday Russ Fairman, a passionate supporter Stella Maris, embarked on a 2.5-month long sailing pilgrimage to celebrate Stella Maris’ 100 years of service to seafarers and fishers.
Over 70 days the Round Britain Sailing Pilgrimage travelled 2,433 miles, with 60 different crew members. They visited over 50 ports and Holy sites and encouraged over 40 media articles and interviews. Around the UK people gathered in 23 locations to welcome Russ and his crew, and many more joined us in prayer.
However you supported this epic journey, it wouldn’t have been possible without you – thank you so much for your support.
Building on the incredible success of the Round Britain Sailing Pilgrimage, we are excited to share that next year, we will be organizing a “Ring of Prayer” around the UK, following the footsteps of the sailing pilgrimage route. This will be a wonderful opportunity to bring together communities and individuals from all around the UK to join us in a collective act of prayer and solidarity for the people of the sea.
Stay tuned for more updates and information about this inspiring event. We will be revealing the route, schedule, and ways you can be a part of this meaningful journey. In the meantime, if you would like to learn more or get involved, please get in touch with us at [email protected]
