Sea Sunday: July 10
Written by Radio Maria England on 01/07/2022
Every year churches around the world celebrate Sea Sunday. It is a day for people to come together to pray for seafarers and fishers and thank them for the vital role they play in all of our lives. This year, Sea Sunday is on the 10th of July, and Radio Maria has partnered with Stella Maris to shine a light on the work of seafarers, their families and the network of chaplains that support their work. Stella Maris helps seafarers in need with our practical, spiritual, and emotional support.
