THE maritime community has celebrated Sea Sunday, a day of recognition for mariners worldwide.

According to the Sydney Mission, Sea Sunday is a chance for all our supporters to celebrate seafarers together and raise money to support our vital work.


“Your church can join with others from around the world to pray, celebrate and fundraise for seafarers – from London to Lagos, Manila to Melbourne,” said Reverend Un Tay from the Sydney Mission.

The day also is associated with charitable fundraising for the seafarers worldwide.

The day is particularly poignant this year with many seafarers unable to get home during the global pandemic.
