Sea Sunday, International Day of Prayer for Seafarers
Whilst not linked directly to a parish, the MtSV ministry operates under the auspice of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne.
The MtSV’s annual appeal is promoted in conjunction with Sea Sunday, an International Day of Prayer for seafarers and their families, which is held on July 9, 2017.
In 2016 the appeal was communicated extensively through the Anglican Diocese and this year raised just over $15,000, a 48% increase in donor giving from the previous year.
Seafarers’ Memorial Service, St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne – October
The Mission to Seafarers Victoria – Seafarers’ Memorial Service is also hosted annually in October at St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne and in conjunction with the Royal Australian Navy, the 2016 Seafarers’ Memorial Service was well attended and paid tribute to both merchant and naval seafarers whose lives have been lost at sea in service to Australia as nation. You are welcome to join us at St Paul’s Cathedral.
