AoS Worldwide

AoS GB is part of a global network of ministry and support to seafarers, better known collectively as Stella Maris.

All over the world AoS supports seafarers, fishers and many other 'people of the sea' and their families. Often chaplains will communicate with their AoS colleagues overseas to ensure care and support for seafarers travelling between countries. We are the largest ship visiting network in the world.

In 2012 AoS's 23rd World Congress was held in Rome. Over 400 delegates from 70 countries met Pope Benedict XVI to discuss The New Evangelisation in the maritime world. As a result of this meeting an up to date contact directory was produced, listing the AoS port chaplains across the world. This directory contains the phone numbers and e-mail addresses of the Catholic maritime agency's 230 chaplains in over 300 ports across 41 countries from Australia to USA.

The map below gives a good view of the ports where AoS has a presence. You can view our latest worldwide contact directory by downloading this pdf.
