Blessing of the Fleet on New Year's Day

DOLPHINS to Stop Domestic Violence, Inc, participates in the annual "Blessing of the Fleet" in the Upper Keys. We are an endorsed ministry in the Upper Keys. Fishing and water sports are key to the economy and livelihood of the community we serve. Both Christian and Jewish clergy offer blessings over each individual boat. The process takes a little over an hour and is a major highlight of the year.

Donate here to the Florida Conference Hurricane Michael Fund to help churches and the neighborhoods that surround them. Through December 31, 2018, donations will be matched up to $500,000. Volunteer to bring yourself or a team to help with the recovery.
