Apostleship of the Sea

A message from Sister Scholastica, the AoS chaplain at the Port of Sunderland:

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to your parishioners for the beautiful knitted caps they provided for the Seafarers who visit Stella Maris Sunderland. I can assure you, both the Seafarers and Sister appreciate the many kind people from the North East who support this Mission.
Our way of thanking you is to take you to the Lord in Prayer. I have Masses offered for all at Lourdes, Fatima, Walsingham, and Sunderland.

Prisons Week 8th-15th October

To support women in Low Newton Prison in Durham on release there will be a collection of essential toiletries on Sunday 8 and Sunday 15 October. Shampoo, shower gel, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes and Roll-on (not spray) deodorants are all very welcome. With winter coming on we are also being asked to help with warm clothing eg hats, gloves, socks, jeans (sizes 12-18) etc. For some women who were admitted in the warmer months the only clothing they have on discharge is the lightweight clothes they arrived in. Your generosity will be greatly appreciated.
