Blessing of the Boats and the Bay in Longport, NJ

Blessing of the Boats and the Bay in Longport, NJ

Church of the Redeemer in Longport, New Jersey held its second annual “Blessing of the Boats and the Bay” yesterday. Approximately 24 boats showed up, including the fire boat and a rescue patrol boat. Reverend Canon Bill Lewellis presided over the service. Church of the Redeemer is a “multi-denominational parish that follows an Episcopal liturgy but is home to Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopal and even Jewish services.” The Press of Atlantic City has a delightful series of pictures here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
