Fisherman's Service
Submitted by Garnett Turner

Balcony view of the altar at St. Thomas Presbyterian Church in Springbrook. Each year, on the Sunday before the lobster fishing season begins, the church celebrates the “Blessing of the Fleets.” The church, seen here, is decorated with fishing nets and other props associated with the fishing industry. The service is used as an opportunity to bless the many men and women involved in dangerous working conditions at sea.
