Caring for Passengers and Crew on Cruise Ships

The AOS USA Cruise Ship Priest Program puts priests onboard to minister to passengers and crew.

Doreen Badeaux is the Secretary General of AOS USA. A former teacher of children with special educational needs and volunteer port pastoral worker, Doreen now takes care of administration for AOS USA. From her office in Port Arthur, Texas, she runs the Cruise Ship Priest Program which supplies appropriately trained and accreditated priests to the cruise industry.

Cruise ship priests are available to say Mass, to listen, to talk and to offer spiritual guidance when asked. The many demands on their time and attention mean that, for a working priest, a cruise is anything but a holiday. This small selection of messages from Doreen's inbox illustrates what an important role a cruise ship chaplain can play, especially in times of tragedy.
