Seafarers faith supported

30th April 2019

AoS Stella Maris South Africa National Director Nicholas Barends took a group of seafarers to attend Mass at St Agnes Church in Woodstock.
              The church celebrated its 120th anniversary on Sunday, 28th April.
              They were accompanied by Stella Maris Cape Town ship visitors Fr Gerardo Garcia and Fr Rico Talisic.
              It was a wonderful day of celebration and fellowship as the visiting seafarers became part of the community.
              And Fr Gerardo even learnt how to line dance!
              Nicholas also brought seafarers to the church to attend the Easter Vigil.
