Loneliness, danger and separation from loved ones are just some of the challenges that seafarers face every day.
The Halifax Mission to Seafarers is a Canadian non-profit charity. As part of a worldwide network of Anglican sponsored Missions, the Halifax Mission offers seafarers help and support when their ships arrive in port.
Under the guidance of our manager and seafarer coordinator our mission provides a warm welcome where seafarers can relax away from their ships, get local information, find help with problems, share in worship, and phone or email their loved ones. Our Mission provides an interdenominational chaplaincy ministry. ___________________________________________________________________
Day of the Seafarer Celebrated as Filipino Community provides delectable luncheon on June 28th, 2014
On June 25th, the Day of the Seafarer, we asked you to think of something you own. Whether it's the car you drive, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the gadgets you use or the furniture you sit on. Thank the seafarer!
We are thankful to the Philippine Consulate Halifax and the Filipino Community for providing a lovely luncheon and raising funds to support our seafarers.
