Seafarer’s Friend
Massachusetts

Ida MacRae

As a Christian organization, Seafarers’ Friend serves Christ by serving others. Since 1827 the Boston Seaman’s Friend Society d/b/a Seafarer’s Friend has extended friendship and hospitality to seafarers to meet their unmet physical, spiritual, emotional, and social needs.

They do this by visiting aboard ships, welcoming and hosting them ashore, supplying them with cards and modems so that they may contact their loved ones, transportation to where they need to go, and pastoral care. When they are unable to come to shore, the mission calls ahead to find out what provisions they need, purchases them, and brings them to the dock for when their ship arrives in port. Chaplains, who work the Northern New England ports of Boston, MA, Portsmouth, NH, and Portland, ME, encourage seafarers to nurture their faith by making available bibles and support literature. They provide chaplaincy, prayer, and counseling for troubled seafarers. They advocate for the seafarers in situations where they are exposed to unsafe and unhealthy working and living conditions as well as unfair treatment.
