Blessing of the Fleet
blessing of the fleet


For the residents of Trinidad, the Blessing of the Fleet on Thanksgiving morning has become as much a part of the holiday as the family feast. Each gathering includes Native American prayers to the north, south, east and west, music, a Christian blessing and good wishes all around. Locals and visitors come together to attend the blessing of the fleet and add their blessings to the fishermen that harvest its bounty.

Blessing of the Fleet

Since the beginning of the Annual Blessing of the Fleet, not one fisherman has been lost to the wiles of the winter sea. There have been close calls, a few years back, a wave rolled a boat not once - but three times and the crew survived. Unfortunately, the year before the annual blessing was launched, one local fisherman was lost. Growing up in Trinidad, fishermen know full well the mercurial nature of the ocean.
