Apostolate of the sea

The Apostleship of the Sea is a Catholic charity supporting seafarers worldwide.

They provide practical and pastoral care to all seafarers, regardless of nationality, belief or race. Our port chaplains and volunteer ship visitors welcome seafarers, offer welfare services and advice, practical help, care and friendship. The Apostleship of the Sea in Mombasa is part of an international network known to the maritime world as Stella Maris, working in 334 ports with 227 port chaplains in 59 countries.

90% of world trade is transported by ship. However the life of a modern seafarer can be dangerous and lonely. They may spend up to a year at a time away from home, separated from their family and loved ones and often working in harsh conditions.
