  • The Blessing of the Fleet in St. Augustine, a historical ceremony dating back to the city’s earliest days of Spanish colonial occupation, takes place each year on Palm Sunday. On April 10, 2022, all vessels — commercial and pleasure — are invited to receive a blessing from the Bishop of the Diocese of St. Augustine.

    With roots from the Spanish Colonial days when seafaring vessels would be blessed, so they will have a safe journey, the tradition continues in 2022. All watercraft from trawlers to yachts are welcome. Each vessel is encouraged to decorate with flags and bunting as well.

    The ceremony begins at noon on Sunday, April, 10, 2022, with a procession from the Cathedral Basilica along the Plaza de la Constitución to the St. Augustine Municipal Marina. This traditional blessing will then take place at the Marina. This event is open to the public.

    Admission: FREE

    When: Noon on Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022

    Where: Begins at the Cathedral Basilica located at 38 Cathedral Place (along the plaza) and ends at the St. Augustine Municipal Marina located at 111 Avenida Menendez, St. Augustine, FL 32084.
