Sea Sunday 2024 - 14th July


Sunday 14th July is Sea Sunday, when the Church prays for all those who live and work at sea.  Seafarers and fishers play a vital role in all of our lives, but they often work in difficult, hazardous conditions.  

The number of crews abandoned by their employers is still at a record high.  Conflicts around the world are compromising their safety, and many are experiencing stress and poorer mental health.  

The special collection today is for Stella Maris (Apostleship of the Sea), the Catholic Church's official maritime agency.  It supports seafarers both practically and spiritually.  Stella Maris is dependent on voluntary donations, so please give generously.  To donate, please visit or text 'SEA' to 70460 to donate £5.  Thank you.
