Interview with Monsignor Daniel Hegerty

One audio cassette. Hegerty, a chaplain at St. Vincents Hospital, describes the beginnings of the Blessing of the Fleet in St. Augustine, going back to his first encounters with the fishermen of West Augustine and individual boat blessings, to the large annual procession that it became. He discusses the pageantry of the event, as well as the significance behind it. He also discusses the European roots behind the tradition. There are places throughout the interview where Hegerty asks that the tape be turned off. Interview conducted during fieldwork for video documentary on Florida shrimping called Fishing All My Days, and was made by the Florida Folklife Program, and the University of Florida (WUFT-TV).
