Seafarers to be remembered on Sea Sunday

6 July 2021

Merchant Navy crew are being commemorated in a special Sailors' Society video message created for Sea Sunday, which is marked by churches around the world every year.

With so many churches still in lockdown, the Society made a short, narrated presentation to increase wider public awareness about the ongoing situation facing seafarers in the pandemic. It is hoping the video will be shared on social media or from the pulpit on the traditional day, which is held on the second Sunday in July – 11 July in 2021.

Founded more than 200 years ago in 1818, the charity is dedicated to caring for the world's estimated 1.6 million men and women merchant seafarers through its global network of chaplains in ports throughout the world.
