Newport Fishermen's Wives
Blessing of the Fleet
It’s that time of year, we have started our planning for our 2022 Blessing of the Fleet. Everyone is welcome to join us!
On Saturday, May 7th we will be having Blessing of the Fleet events starting at 2:00pm with our Boat Procession and Bless the Fleet. This has been a longstanding tradition in our community for decades. This takes place in our harbor and can be viewed from most locations on our Bayfront. Any seaworthy vessel is welcome to join us. Sign up forms will be at Englund and Schiewe Marine stores.
At 4:00pm we will have a community BBQ, we are looking forward to taking this time to reengage with our community and give thanks for all of the support we have gotten throughout the last few years. This lunch will be free of charge and is open to everyone in our community.
Location to be announced.
We will be ending the day at our treasured Memorial, with a service remembering our fishermen lost at sea while offering support and encouragement to all our fishing families. This will take place at the Fishermen's Memorial Sanctuary at 7:00pm.
