The  Blessing of the Bees took place this week in New York City !

The buzz at a New York City cathedral was over a blessing for bees. The Episcopal St. John the Divine Cathedral hosted its first Blessing of the Bees Tuesday. The service took place at a new hive on the grounds of the massive Gothic church. Cathedral officials say the hive will be a haven for bees and will benefit the city’s green spaces and gardens. Those who attended were advised to wear long pants and long sleeves.

Are you a "Bee" lover ? Ever had to remove a hive from your house ? Where was the biggest hive you've ever seen ?

The cathedral has hosted blessings of the animals and blessings of the bikes. But this was the first blessing of the bees.
