Apostleship of the Sea       

The Apostleship of the Sea is a Catholic charity supporting seafarers worldwide.

They provide practical and pastoral care to all seafarers, regardless of nationality, belief or race. Our port chaplains and volunteer ship visitors welcome seafarers, offer welfare services and advice, practical help, care and friendship. The Apostleship of the Sea in Great Britain is part of an international network known to the maritime world as Stella Maris, working in 311 ports with 216 port chaplains around the world.
The parish supports AoS annually via the Sea Sunday collection, held on the second Sunday in July each year. This is a valued contribution and allows them to continue their vital work with seafarers.

Catenians small

Men committed to their faith, their families, to those in need and to each other.   The Catenians provide catholic laymen and their families with a supportive social network built on friendships developed through their shared faith and values. We enjoy the good times and share the bad by offering practical and spiritual support.  Catenians are active supporters of the church, and you’ll find Catenians busy in all aspects of parish life.  Fundraising is not our main aim. but each year we raise over £300,000 for good causes, and enjoy ourselves while doing so. We are major supporters of the Office for Vocations. We help young people to attend events such as the Diocesan Youth Camp and the Flame 17 Festival at Wembley in March 2017. We also sponsor young people aged 18-25 to serve others at home or overseas. Last year the Catenians supported young Catholics on projects in 53 different countries.
