Thanks to $25,000 in donations by Cunard over the past two years, The Seamen’s Church Institute (1834) has wireless internet capabilities, 24 new telephone lines and new comfortable cubicles. The huge increase in cruise ship crew members passing through New York and New Jersey will now be able to reach loved ones back home using an array of technology. “Providing pastoral care and service to thousands of cruise ship workers is indeed and challenge and a joy. We are grateful to Cunard for the exceptional support of our services to their crews,” said the Rev. David M. Rider, SCI’s Executive Director.
