Rosaries for seafarers
02nd April 2019
The Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of the most popular sacramentals desired by seafarers. We rely on voluntary contributions to sustain our work. Please make a donation today and help us continue our work supporting seafarers
Each day around the United Kingdom, chaplains and ship visitors from the Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) – Stella Maris visit ships bringing practical, pastoral and spiritual care to seafarers. They also distributed rosaries to the crew on ships and at port.
While many seafarers will go for months at a time without access to the Holy Mass or the sacraments, they greatly desire to have a piece of or at least a reminder of their Faith close to their hearts. The Holy Rosary is one such item that seafarers love to have with them.
Helping in this venture to bring rosaries to seafarers are the Sisters of Mary the Morning Star (Grayshott Sisters) within the Diocese of Portsmouth.
The sisters make beautiful rosaries of tropical wood which comes directly from the Philippines.
Any rosaries commissioned to be made by the Grayshott Sisters will be blessed by AoS Regional Port Chaplain for South Coast Ports Fr John Lavers and given to seafarers.
If you would like to commission the Grayshott Sisters to make rosaries for the seafarers of the world, please contact them on 01428 289 481 or e-mail: email@example.com
Mary, the Morning Star…Pray for us! Our Lady Star of the Sea (Stella Maris)…Pray for us!
