The Blessing of the Fleet, 2024

The community and church members gathered this morning for the Blessing of the Fleet in Menemsha, Ma. As the service progressed, serenaded by the lovely vocals of Molly Conole and Mark Alan Lovewell, the clouds gently cleared. The sun broke through just as flowers were offered with prayers to the sea. After the service, while we gathered in the glow of conversation and donuts, a pod of porpoises swam by.
