Blessing of the Fleet
May 7 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The annual blessing of boats and aircraft servicing the Bass Islands will be held in the Put-in-Bay Harbor off Fox’s Dock. Local clergy will bless the vessels, a centuries old tradition in ports worldwide. Ferry boats, water taxis, rescue vessels, commercial watercraft, commercial aircraft, and medical helicopters will be blessed for the 2019 season by clergy representing the island’s three congregations from Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and St. John’s Lutheran Church.
