Ministering to Seafarers

Ministering to Seafarers at the Port of Vancouver – The Apostleship of the Sea (Stella Maris) provides pastoral care to the crew of cargo ships that dock in Vancouver, Canada’s largest seaport. We ask for your prayers in support of this ministry. There is ongoing need for volunteers. For more information on volunteering, please contact Deacon Dileep Athaide, Catholic Chaplaincy Coordinator for the Port of Vancouver, at 604-817-6370 or at
This is also the time of year when we seek your financial support for the Christmas at Sea campaign, where we, together with our ecumenical partners from the Anglican and Reform Church, provide gifts to all seafarers in port who are away from their families during the Christmas season. Please send tax-deductible contributions to RCAV Seafarers Ministry, 4885 Saint John Paul II Way, Vancouver, BC V5Z 0G3. Thank you for your generosity.
