The Men and Women of the Apostleship of the Sea
To celebrate the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for Mariners and People of the Sea, we are highlighting stories that provide a sampling of the lives touched by the work of the Apostleship of the Sea (AOS) pastoral teams in the USA. These stories are not meant to be exhaustive of the ministry or services of the AOS, nor of the experiences of seafarers and families but they provide a glimpse into the reality of the lives of those who minister and those we serve.
