How We Began

Amy Perry interviews the Week of Blessings co-founders Mel Ponder and Capt. Mike Parker.


As a community foundation, the annual Blessing of the Destin Fishing Fleet takes place in the Destin harbor on Ascension Day. On this day, local pastors gather to bless charter fishing boats and others who earn their living from the sea, for safe passage and bountiful catches. Today, the Blessing of the Fleet has grown along with the community and its businesses becoming a week-long celebration. Included in this annual event is also the Blessing of the Marketplace.

Please check the calendar for further details for each day's event.

Each day during the week, we will carry blessings to a different group… Come join us for any or all the events!
