Those killed in the collision of the Jolly Nero one year ago on May 7, 2013 were remembered in a memorial Mass celebrated by the Cardinal of Genoa, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco. 

Seafarers’ charity Apostleship of the Sea also held a commemoration in Genoa at the hour of tragedy on Wednesday to offer support and prayers for survivors and families affected.  The day of remembrance concluded with boats gathering at the sight of the collision to pray for the deceased and to cast wreaths on the water.

The containership crashed into a control tower in the Italian port of Genoa last year, causing it to collapse killing nine people.

The memorial service was particularly poignant as a year ago the Cardinal personally went to bless the bodies of the deceased. 

For nearly 70 years the Apostleship of the Sea has been providing practical support to seafarers visiting Genoa at their seafarers’ center. Apostleship of the Sea provides both practical and spiritual support to seafarers in more than 250 ports around the world. This ranges from providing transport to shops to hospital visiting and mediating in disputes over pay and conditions.
