Fleet Will Be Blessed at St. Ignace

The annual Blessing of the Fleet will take place at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 20, at the city marina in St. Ignace. Father Norbert Landreville will offer a prayer and walk the marina docks, blessing vessels for any boat owner who is there.

The first of these yearly blessings took place in 2007, when crafts lined up in the bay and were blessed from shore near Watawam lighthouse.

Anyone interested in having their boat blessed should dock at the St. Ignace city marina and be aboard during the scheduled blessing.

This year's event is being organized by the St. Ignace Yacht Club. Questions can be directed to Gene Elmer, the marina director.
