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.
Our managerial staff and volunteers reach out to them by visiting them on their ships, offering a warm welcome and whatever other help may be needed. Our Mission provides an interdenominational chaplaincy ministry.
Under the guidance of our Seafarer Coordinator and Manager, our Seafarers Centre in Halifax provides a place 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.________________________________________________________________
