Blessing of the Fleet

Thursday, 28 July 2022

From a concept developed by the Fishing Industry and Rotary, this event which started in 1997 in collaboration with Seafearer’s Memorial Trust has now been held for 20 years.

Though it is a memorial service for those who have lost their lives at sea it  also through the blessing reinforces the importance of Nelson as Australasia’s largest fishing port. 

You can read about our full story on Nelson's unique Blessing of the Fleet and how it has helped cultivate Nelson's unique heritage.
