Mission to Seafarers-Ditty Bags

Collecting Donations now, for the 2015 Mission to Seafarers Ditty Bag Day
Saturday, Nov. 21, 10:00 AM, St. John’s Parish Hall
Each year during the Christmas season we say thank you to the seafarers on merchant vessels calling at the Port of Seattle by giving them Ditty Bags filled with small gifts and toiletries. You can take part by collecting and donating items and by joining others from around the diocese, as they come to St. John’s to assemble the ditty bags.
