40th Anniversary Celebration
Corpus Christi International Seamen's Center
Honoring Captain Richard Phillips
Internationally Acclaimed Hero of the High Seas
For five days in April 2009, the world was glued to their TV screens as Captain Richard Phillips became the center of an extraordinary international drama when he was captured by Somali pirates who hijacked his ship. Now made into a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips' experience and rescue highlight the perils of life at sea.

Seafarers will bring you most of what you give this Christmas. Why not remember them by giving to seafarers' centers that welcome them to our ports?
With pride and honor, we salute our armed services and merchant mariner veterans.
To all who have served in our military, thank you. The sacrifices you made in honor and duty to our country are worthy of praise.
You truly are American heroes! Happy Veterans Day!
Our Mission: To offer refuge, resources, renewal and respect
to the maritime community through multi-faith service.
