Sea Sunday...

On Sunday 28 June Sea Sunday will be marked at the 10 am Sung Eucharist at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds. Suffolk has a long maritime and coastal history, and Sea Sunday is a day to remember seafarers and pray for them, their families and those who support them, and to give thanks for the work of the Mission to Seafarers.

The Director of Justice and Public Affairs for the Mission to Seafarers, the Reverend Canon Ken Peters, will be the preacher that day. The Mothers’ Union in the Diocese is actively involved in the work of Mission to Seafarers by providing knitted hats for sailors and some of these will be presented at the offertory during the service. The Junior Church will also take the theme of Sea Sunday that day and will share with the congregation what they have learnt towards the end of the service.

‘Working at sea is dangerous and can be very lonely,’ comments the Reverend Canon Philip Banks, Precentor at the Cathedral, who is responsible for organising services at the Cathedral. ‘We are pleased to be supporting the vital work of Mission to Seafarers, particularly in the work they do in this County at the port of Felixstowe.’

Mission to Seafarers is a charity funded by voluntary donations. They provide help and support to the invisible workforce of 1.5 million men and women upon whom we all rely to bring us 90% of the goods we use on a daily basis.
