Port chaplains speak at Canary Wharf


 Port chaplain Fr Paul Boagey will give the next T-ology on the Wharf lunchtime talk on Thursday 1 June on the 'Criminalisation of Seafarers' in the Canary Wharf Prayer Room, 2 Churchill Place. The Criminalisation of Seafarers is an ecumenical initiative of the Apostleship of the Sea (Stella Maris) and the German Seamen's Mission. Fr Paul will be joined by Deacon Dirk Obermann of the German Seamen's Mission. Fr. Paul Boagey is the regional co-ordinator for the Stella Maris on the Thames and Medway Rivers, based in the port of Tilbury. For further details of the initiative, visit: www.deeplysearious.com, the forum of chaplains working in ecumenical collaboration to support seafarers from all over the world; regardless of their colour, nationality or religion. The talk at 12.30pm will be followed by questions and discussion. All are welcome. Please feel free to bring along packed lunches. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided. The T-ology on the Wharf lunchtime talks are part of a theology and Christian ethics discussion group organized by the Canary Wharf Catholic Community (CWCC) and take place in the Canary Wharf Prayer Room, 2 Churchill Place on the first Thursday of the month (except August). The CWCC has grown up around the celebration of the Mass in the Canary Wharf Prayer Room and meets every Tuesday for Mass at 12.30pm. The CWCC is part of a pastoral outreach of St Edmund's parish on the Isle of Dogs. Visit: www.cwcc.org.uk for further details.
