On Sea Sunday we gather around the world to think of seafarers welfare.
On Sea Sunday, you can become a powerhouse of prayer and fundraising for our work, each year in July you can join with thousands of people from London to Lagos, Durban to Dunkerque and Melbourne to Manila who come together to pray, celebrate and fundraise for our vital work.
Please remember the contribution that seafarers make to our daily lives, and the Mission to Seafarers which supports them.
Since 1857, the Mission to Seafarers Victoria has relied on the generosity of donors and the prayers of the community.
Today approximately 1.5 million seafarers carry over 90% of world trade. Their lives are isolated and lonely. The conditions they experience are often harsh and dangerous, and the prevalence of piracy, abandonment and injury results in trauma for seafarers and their families.
Their wellbeing is often in our hands and we rely on your support to care for them while they are in our ports.
The Mission to Seafarers Victoria historically and even more today is dependent upon the work of Port Chaplains, Ship Visitors and the great contribution of volunteers in the delivery of services.
