On our way to the Easter Egg Hunt this morning we drove past the Blessing of the Bikes in Gautier. I was kicking myself for not having a camera with me to take some pictures. It was sponsored by a Christian motorcycling club and located on the grounds of a Methodist Church. They were giving out free motorcycle blessing stickers. There was a lot of fellowship happening among the better part of 1,000 bikers of all sorts, from kids on crotch-rockets to white-beards on Electra-Glide Classics.
I’m glad to see the message of the Blessing of the Fleet made famous locally in Bayou La Batre spreading to other clients. The St. Mary Parish in Gautier really should get involved in this to give the bikes a proper blessing.
