Seafarer’s Friend is celebrating 185 years of ministry in the Port of Boston, and will host a fund-raising celebration at the New England Aquarium in Boston on Friday, May 4, at 7:00 PM. The cost is $50 per person until April 30; $60 thereafter. To receive a formal invitation and register, go here.
As port chaplain, Seafarer's Friend is an important humanitarian and supportive part of the port community, providing emotional, spiritual and practical assistance to the port community as well as to seafarers. Ship visitors aid in calling families, offer transport to area stores, and help address issues of life in a dangerous and lonely environment. Seafarer's Friend has long been a recognized ministry partner of the Massachusetts Conference, and is supported by many MACUCC congregations.
