Blessing of the Waters
On Thursday August 15th we enjoyed our annual Mass for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary at 9:00 AM. The anointing of the sick was offered at the Mass. At the conclusion of the Mass, we processed to the beach for the "Blessing of the Waters."
Ancient tradition holds that there is healing in the waters of the sea on the feast day of Mary. At the beach we pray for the sick and for healing and many go into the waters for themselves or for those they love.
