FALMOUTH — Due to the pandemic the annual celebration of the Blessing of the Fleet in Provincetown was again subdued this year. There was no procession and no parade of boats this year.
Following a 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. Peter’s Church, the pastor, Father Hugh McCullough went down to McMillan Pier, where he climbed aboard the harbormaster’s boat to motor around the docks to bless the boats.
Next year is the 75th anniversary of the Blessing of the Fleet and the organizers are looking forward to a big celebration marking the special anniversary.
