SEA SUNDAY—COLLECTION THIS SUNDAY
Seafarer and fishers play a vital role in all of our lives, but they often work in difficult, hazardous condi tions. In the last year more crews have been abandoned by their employers than ever before. Many are still being denied the right to leave their ships for even a short break away from the relentless noise and pressure on board. Many are reporting more stress and poorer mental health.
Sea Sunday is when the Church prays for all those who live and work on the sea. Our support in the collec tion will help make a difference to seafarers and fishers in need. You can donate in Church or via http://www.stellamaris.org.uk/donate. This collection will help Stella Maris continue their important work of spiritually and pastorally befriending and helping those who live and work at sea.
CHILDRENS’ LITURGY—WE WILL BE TAKING A BREAK OVER THE SUMMER HOLIDAYS. Next Sunday will be the last session until September when the schools go back. We look forward to seeing you then and hearing all your news. THE SOWER MAGAZINE —our free diocesan magazine available today in print and online via diocesan website. Items of interest concerning the parishes and communities of our large and varied diocese.
