The Church in Taiwan will pray for seafarers and their families around the world on the first local Sea Sunday on July 10.

Bishop Bosco Lin Chinan of Tainan, bishop promoter of the Apostolic of the Sea (AOS) in Taiwan, issued an appeal to call for prayer and Masses to all seafarers and fishers, and to support the AOS financially, especially on the Sea Sunday.

“However, far our parish communities may be from the sea, each of us benefits from the work of seafarers and each of us has a part to play in supporting the Church’s outreach to seafarers,” he said.

Sea Sunday was created to arouse world attention about seafarers’ contributions and the dangers and challenges they face in their work.
