Blessing of the Fleet @ Skansie Park | Gig Harbor | Washington | United States

The Blessing of the Fleet, a time honored tradition, lives on in Gig Harbor as the Saint Nicholas Catholic Church Knights of Columbus and parish Priest process from the church to Skansie Park with the “Our Lady of the Harbor” icon where a service is held to honor those lost at sea and to pray for a safe and bountiful catch. The Priest then circles the fishing fleet blessing each boat and crew with holy water. Anchor your boat or canoe or kayak in to join us!
