Many Blessings on Land and at Sea


Runners and walkers from the Office of Vocations race team gathered before the recent Blessing of the Fleet road race at St. Thomas More Parish. Their shirts encouraged observers to “Pray for Vocations.” The road race is part of a weekend-long celebration of the Blessing of the Fleet well-known to members of the Narragansett community. Fishing boats and recreational watercraft make their way once a year to the Port of Galilee, where they parade for local officials and receive a special blessing. This year, a crowd watched from the shore on Saturday, July 24, as Father Francis Kayatta, pastor of St. Mary Star of the Sea, blessed the boats as they passed by. The annual event is hosted by the Narragansett Lions Club.
