Article from Vesterheim, Vol. 20, No. 1, 2022

In this article by Haley Newman, learn about Norwegian Sea Churches (Sjømannskirker) and their history in the United States.

Throughout the history of the Norwegian Church Abroad, this organization has constantly adapted to serve the needs of its people outside Norway’s borders. While the types of needs abroad have changed throughout time, the church continues to provide support and to help people stay in touch with their home country, making Norway feel less far away for Norwegians living and traveling abroad.
