"In the name of the Father..."

Posted May 18, 2006

Father Michael Nagle officiates at the annual motorcycle blessing that took place on Mother's Day this year. Rain forced the event to be held at the Portuguese-American Club in Oak Bluffs rather than at its usual location at the Oak Bluffs steamship wharf.
A chalice filled with holy water and rain at last Sunday's motorcycle blessing at the Portuguese-American Club in Oak Bluffs.
Mike "Panhead" Fuss doesn't seem to mind the rain.
Three riders took off on a post-blessing ride: (from left) Mike Dow, Wes Wood, and Mike "Panhead" Fuss. In better weather, a huge line of bikes can be seen making the run after the blessing.
