Our Lady of Help
I was in Boston on college visits with my daughter and we went to the North End for dinner, and happen to stumble into the opening ceremonies for an Italian Festival called The Fisherman's Feast. It is an old tradition brought over from Sicily, and Our Lady of Help is processed through the streets of the North End down to the fishing docks for a blessing of the waters to keep fishermen safe.
