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. ___________________________________________________________________
KUDOS TO VOLUNTEERS!
Esau Cassell, Manager, Floors Plus, his lovely wife Cheryl and Mission volunteers donated two days of their personal time to replace the worn floors in Mission to Seafarers Halifax. While a grant from the International Sailors Society of Canada was successfully acquired (thanks Maggie)!, and enabled payment of supplies, we did not have the funding to cover labour costs. We offer many thanks to Esau & Cheryl Cassell, Wally Thorne, Jack Gallagher, Leon Goguen, Norman and Susan Picton, and Sandra Attersley. Many thanks to Aurora and James Parsons, who donated and installed a new toilet for the women's washroom! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
