Blessing the fleet

The 48th annual Blessing of the fleet was held this past weekend in Narragansett. Spectators watched as numerous boats passed by, many decorated for the traditional parade and blessing from local clergy. Money raised helped support several local charities. Fr. Kayatta of St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Parish blessed the more than 300 boats as they passed by, and boaters celebrated the event as they received their blessings.
