SEAFARERS SUNDAY—Apostleship of the seA—Stella MariS
the Church prays for those who live and work on the sea.
Stella Maris, Apostleship of the Sea

is the official maritime welfare agency of the Catholic Church.
Today’s Appeal supports seafarers both practically and spiritually.
During
the COVID-19 pandemic, seafarers continue to bring products
to sustain our population and economy,

often at personal risk to their health.
Two options to support this ministry,
(1) Please send your donations to: bit.ly/seasundayaustralia
For further information, please call:

(2) Please deposit your donations in the SPECIAL COLLECTION BOX
—SEAFARERS’ SUNDAY in
the Church in support of all those whose life
experience is on the ocean—an experience so unpredictable

& sometimes dangerous. The Church recognises and supports
seafarers & their families.
