“Samaritans of the Sea”
From far-away lands, ship workers arrive in our Delaware River ports without basic provisions and without the means to advocate for themselves. Seamen's Church Institute (SCI) is an ecumenical ministry called to welcome and befriend these mariners.
As one of the largest, busiest ports in the United States, our service area covers 125 miles of Delaware Riverway in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and accounts for $17 billion in regional commerce. We invite you to explore the links at the left to learn more about what SCI provides for these migrant workers of the sea, for our port community, and the local economy.
