Scandinavian Business Club Dinner

Rev. Peter Smyth “The Mis­sion to Sea­far­ers”

Peter is the Senior Chap­lain of The Mis­sion to Sea­far­ers in Van­cou­ver. He was born and grew up in North­ern Ire­land and has lived and trav­elled in India, Nepal and Ger­many. Ordained in Christ Church Cathe­dral Dublin (Church of Ire­land – Angli­can. Moved to Cana­da in 2001 to Thun­der Bay, Ontario, in 2011 to Sault Ste Marie, and in 2016 to Van­cou­ver to his cur­rent posi­tion.

At the Mis­sion to Sea­far­ers in Van­cou­ver (part of a world­wide orga­ni­za­tion www.missiontoseafarers.org present in over 200 ports) their goal is the same it was when it all began in Eng­land in the 1830’s and that is to care for the spir­i­tu­al, phys­i­cal and emo­tion­al needs of all sea­far­ers and their fam­i­lies. Sea­far­ers are iso­lat­ed from their fam­i­lies and the rest of soci­ety spend­ing many months at sea. The Mis­sion to Sea­far­ers response is a min­istry of ‘pres­ence’ and ‘hos­pi­tal­i­ty’ done by vis­it­ing sea­far­ers on their ship, lis­ten­ing and let­ting them know we care, and by pro­vid­ing cen­tres that are a ‘home away from home’ where they can go and relax, speak with fam­i­ly, send mon­ey home, etc. They also advo­cate for sea­far­ers, keep­ing a watch­ful eye on con­di­tions on board and help­ing them know their rights.

Join us to hear Peter tell us about the work of the Mis­sion and sto­ries of the Port of Van­cou­ver and the sea­far­ers who vis­it, and we should all learn more and grow in our under­stand­ing of, and appre­ci­a­tion for, the sea­far­er.
