• At AoS, we pray that Mary, Star of the Sea, guide and protect them in their journeys on the high seas.

  • Their ship. Their home. For several months.

  • Volunteer bus drivers take them from their ships to the shopping centres, churches and seafarers’ centres.

  • … or by volunteers and staff who welcome them at the Stella Maris centres and visit them in hospitals.

  • When their ships dock on the port, they are nourished by Chaplains who visit them to celebrate Mass …

  • SEAFARERS travel for months on these ships to bring us specialised medical equipment, computer hardware, equipment for mining and farming, mobile phones, clothes and so many other items.
