Fishermen's Mass to be Streamed

Fishermen's Mass to be Streamed

Although the traditional, large Blessing of the Fleet ceremony will not take place this year because of COVID-19, the Stonington fishing fleet will still receive a special blessing on Sunday.

The Fishermen's Mass, offered to remember deceased fishermen and their familes and to pray for a bountiful harvest and the safety of current fishermen, will take place at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, July 26, at St. Mary Church in Stonington Borough.

The large procession of the statue of St. Peter, the patron saint of fishermen, through the streets of Stonington Borough will not take place this year. However, the fleet will be blessed by Father Dennis Perkins and the traditional wreath-laying at the fishermen's memorial and the laying of the anchor wreath at sea will take place.

The Mass will be livestreamed, and can be viewed by clicking the link: St. Michael the Archangel Church
