Norwegian Church and Seamen's Mission, St Olav's Church

The Norwegian Seamen’s Mission was established to secure the moral and religious education of Scandinavian seafarers, but also to give them a "breathing room" where a fellow countryman was available to lend an ear and give some attention

Today, the churches and their staff together with travelling priests and lay people around the globe represent a "resource center" for all Norwegians travelling internationally.
