St Mary’s Lochee’s generous support for Sea Sunday

Fundraising, Parish News

Apostleship of the Sea were given a warm welcome as they made a return visit to St Mary the Immaculate Conception in Lochee, Dundee to celebrate Sea Sunday recently.

Ship visitor Jacqueline McGuire, who regularly supports seafarers who arrive in the City of Discovery, spoke at both Masses over the February weekend on the invitation of Mgr Aldo Angelosanto.

Jacqueline’s insight into the issues facing those earning a livelihood at sea was well-received and parishioners responded by raising £270 as well as kindly offering to donate warm hats for seafarers visiting these shores from much warmer climates.

Mgr Aldo thanked Jacqueline for attending his parish which is in the Dunkeld Diocese where AoS Bishop Promoter for Scotland, Stephen Robson, is so supportive.

Mgr Aldo said; ‘It was a very interesting talk from Jacqueline and we thank here for coming to our parish and sharing her experiences.

‘Apostleship of the Sea is doing great work here in this city and further afield which we really appreciate and are naturally happy to help.’

Jacqueline said; ‘It was really nice being back at St Mary’s, Lochee. The parishioners seemed to enjoy our story and were very generous once more.’
