Provincetown’s Blessing of Fleet to be private event in response to Coronavirus

“The Festival, the Pier Corporation, Harbormaster, Fishermen and St. Peter’s parish are working together to arrange a psalm private blessing of the boats,” festival organizers said in a statement. The change was in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and the bishop of the Fall River Diocese likely will be on the water in a boat to give the blessing. There won’t be the big party that people are used to, MacMillan Pier manager Doug Boulanger said. “There’ll be nothing really to see,” he said. This quiet period is a good opportunity to pause and honor the past and remember the crews lost at sea, as well as pray for safe voyages of the town’s commercial fishing fleet. >click to read< 09:16
