Apostleship of the Sea to appoint port chaplains in Diocese of Argyll & the Isles

“I call on the chaplains and volunteers of the Apostleship of the Sea to continue with their commitment to the pastoral care of their brothers and sisters”         Pope Francis, July 2014

Part-time Regional Port Chaplains: Diocese of Argyll and the Isles
Salary: £23,000 per annum pro rata to 3 days per week

AoS would like to appoint two part-time regional port chaplains to work in the diocese of Argyll and the Isles, predominantly with the fishermen who work in the busy fishing industry out of ports scattered throughout the diocese. It is envisaged that two appointments will be made, one based on the mainland, the other in the Western Isles. Both appointments will be reviewed after 12 months.

The task of AoS regional port chaplains is to be alongside the People of the Sea, to make visible our care for their pastoral and spiritual well-being through a hands-on, practical expression of the Catholic Church’s mission.
• AoS regional port chaplains are priests, nuns, permanent deacons and lay chaplains.
• A Catholic faith, belief in our mission to seafarers and fishermen working within a globalised industry and excellent interpersonal skills are essential.
• Experience in chaplaincy is desirable.

For an application pack or an informal chat contact Martin Foley, National Director, on 07941 231628 or martinfoley@apostleshipofthesea.org.uk.
