RUBIS recently recommitted its support of St. Lucia’s vibrant fishing community during The Feast of St. Peter which celebrates the importance of fishermen to the nation.
The annual celebration of The Feast of St. Peter incorporates several activities including a special celebratory church service followed by a procession of the clergy, members of Government, fishermen and their families and supporters. There is also the traditional blessing of the boats and a ceremony acknowledging the achievements made by the fishermen throughout the year.
This year Team RUBIS visited the Laborie, Castries, Dennery, Gros Islet and Vieux Fort fishing communities to celebrate the feast with the fisherfolk and present prizes to the winners of the community fisheries’ administrative teams. Jennifer Leid, RUBIS Accounts Executive explained, “This is our second year supporting The Feast of St. Peter celebrations, which highlights the hard work of our partners in the fishing communities, to whom we provide Ultra Tec Fuel and Total Lubricants via their fishing cooperatives.” She added, “We were elated to partner with them in this initiative and to provide Total Lubricants as prizes in the different categories.”
The Feast of St. Peter is celebrated annually in the St. Lucia fishing communities.
