2021 Blessing Ceremony

A small private Blessing ceremony was held this year on Ulladulla wharf, to bless the fishing trawlers with a bountiful catch and safe return for the year ahead.

Local Italian fisherman Tony Lavalle did an amazing job of coordinating the ceremony. The tradition being close to his heart, it’s continuation very important to him.

Around 100 local Italian fisherman and their families and crew gathered for the age old tradition, the Statute of St Peter residing over the proceedings.

Father Michael performed a moving ceremony, before the Statue of St Peter was carried to the wharf to preside over the official blessing of the boats.

Ulladulla Marine Rescue took Father Michael out on the harbour to get up close to the fishing trawlers, blessing each boat individually.

It was great to see the return of the tradition of the boats cruising out of the harbour, doing a lap, before returning into the harbour to mark the occasion.
