Stella Maris

Stella Maris is the largest ship-visiting charity in the world. It is a global network of over 1,000 chaplains and volunteers in 326 ports spread across 60 countries. Each year this remarkable team conducts around 70,000 ship visits to provide welfare services, advice, friendship, practical and pastoral care to all seafarers, regardless of nationality, belief or race. Stella Maris provides a friendly face in a foreign land, someone the seafarer can trust, speak to and confide in.
