North Sydney Sunrise

We are men and women who meet regularly in North Sydney for fellowship, networking and breakfast!

It's a great way to make new friends. We come from many walks of life and backgrounds with a common goal - service to the community (local and worldwide) through fellowship.

Please note the club will not be holding a Breakfast Meeting on Tuesday the 26th January as it is Australia Day.

02 February 2021  -   Sister Mary Leah

Seafarers & the Pandemic   

It is estimated that around 100,000 seafarers finish their contracts and fly home every month in normal times.  This is not currently happening, and they are stuck on the ships for who knows how long.

Known as the “angel of Sydney’s waterfront” Sister Mary Leahy has spent the past 20 years helping those who earn a living on the seas. She said she has never seen conditions so desperate. She is working around the clock to help the thousands of exhausted sea farers caught up in the centre of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Day-and-night, the softly spoken sister with a cheeky sense of humour is known to appear with everything from clean clothes, practical advice, spiritual guidance or just a listening ear for somebody doing it tough.

Sister Mary will talk about her experiences supporting seafarers, with a special focus on the pandemic of 2020.
