100 years after its foundation in October 1920, Stella Maris has developed into the largest ship visiting charity in the world.

Born on the banks of the Clyde in Glasgow, Stella Maris is now a truly international network, with over 1,000 chaplains and volunteers in 330 ports across 60 countries. This remarkable team makes 70,000 ship visits annually to vessels of all flags and nationalities to look after the wellbeing and welfare of all seafarers – regardless of race, creed or faith.

Its already vital work has heightened during the pandemic, helping countless thousands of seafarers to connect with their distant families, to cope with the increased length of separation, and to deal with serious issues ranging from non-payment of wages to death at sea.  Read more and support our work the next 100 years.
