The Apostleship of the Sea (AoS) is the official maritime and welfare mission agency of the Catholic Church in Britain, as well as a registered charity wholly reliant on voluntary contributions. Ninety percent of world trade is carried by ship, however seafarers often work in dangerous conditions suffering loneliness, deprivation and even exploitation. AoS deploys chaplains and ship visitors who welcome vulnerable merchant seafarers to our shores and provides for their pastoral and practical needs. Catholic seafarers are also given the opportunity to receive the sacraments. AoS also provides chaplains on board cruise ships, works to maintain seafarers` centres inside ports, and collaborates with industry bodies to speak up for seafarers` rights. AoS relies on a network of valued parish contacts to sustain its development.
