I am a ship visitor for the “Apostleship of the Sea” also known as “Stella Maris”. The AoS is a Catholic charity that ministers to seafarers worldwide. Many of the crews of Merchant Ships come from third world Countries because they are much cheaper to employ (and exploit, in some cases). I visit in the Medway area and sometimes out to the Isle of Grain or Sheppey. As you may know, once a year there is a second collection on “Sea Sunday” – the proceeds are the main funds that keep AoS going. If you would like more information on The Apostleship of The Sea or how to get involved, please contact Bob Bushnell through the Parish Office.
