All in The Mission to Seafarers global community join in paying tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth on the occasion of her Platinum Jubilee.
As our Patron, we owe a particular debt of gratitude. Her extraordinary 70 years on the throne has been marked by a sustained depth and quality of service and by the deep and compassionate faith which has undergirded it. These qualities are amongst those which have inspired so many across the world and to which we ourselves aspire as an organisation. I have written to Her Majesty to assure her of our prayers and good wishes for the future.
“Gracious God, we give you thanks
for the 70-year reign of your servant Queen Elizabeth.
We give thanks for her long service as Patron of The Mission to Seafarers,
and for her example of love and faithfulness
shown in so many ways.
Help us to follow her example of dedication
and to commit our lives to you and to one another,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Revd Canon Andrew Wright
