Annual Blessing of the Fishing Fleet

September 8 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm AST

The annual homage to the Virgin Mary of the Valley, patron saint of fishermen, will take place starting at 3:00 PM at the fisherman’s pier at Sorobon, Lac Bay.  Holy Mass will be celebrated on the beach, and the boat parade will be held directly afterward.

This is a unique and moving cultural tradition, providing an insight into Bonaire’s maritime traditions, which are rarely seen.  It is when the fisherman thank their patron saint for safe passage in the past year, and ask for safe passage for themselves and their fishing fleet in the coming year.
