On Oct. 24, 1980 the SS Poet and its 34 crewmen disappeared while en route to Egypt to deliver food for the poor. Nine of the crewmembers were from the Philadelphia area. Every year, we gather with friends and family of these missing seamen and honor them with a special Sunday service.
It is been 40 years since this vessel vanished and what happened remains a mystery.
To honor these men, HGDPC is creating a memory wall which will be displayed inside the church sacristy. You can contribute to this project by submitting your tribute online. Our goal is to share these messages with our Poet families when they visit us this October.
