The Apostelship of the Sea Stella Maris Centre is an organization of the Roman Catholic Church,which serves seafareres, offering them hospitality,social assistance, and spiritual ministry.

AOS Stella Maris in Poland is present in Gdynia, Gdańsk, Szczecin and Świnoujście.

The Apostleship of the Sea operates under the auspices of the Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People.

It is known worldwide in English as "Apostleship of the Sea" (AOS), or the Latin names - "Apostolatus Maris" or "Stella Maris". The activities of our organization is addressed to professional groups working in extremely difficult conditions with long-term separation from family, away from home and the local church.

Seafarers around the world are now a community of about a million five hundred thousand merchant fleet sailors and forty-one million employed in the fishery industry. It should be noted that globally 90% of goods are transported by sea.

Problems in this environment still absorb the interest of the Church, as conditions at sea always remain difficult.
