Blessing of the Boats in Traverse City

Boating season has just begun in Northern Michigan with the weather starting to warm up.

But there can be many dangers on the water.

Today several boats came to West Grand Traverse Bay for the Blessing of the Boats.

The Knights of Columbus hosted the event.

Father Anthony Citro from Immaculate Conception in Traverse City blessed a handful of vessels for a safe season on the water.

This was the 1st year Knights of Columbus hosted the Blessing of the Boats.

They hope to bring in a bigger crowd next year and raise money for a local charity.
