Missouri River Gets Blessing From Sioux City Church

Posted: 08 January, 2013

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) – The Missouri River has received a special blessing from an Iowa church that hopes the ceremony will make the river holy and reduce flooding and drought. Father Lucas Rice led a group of congregants from St. Thomas Orthodox Church in Sioux City in the ceremony on Sunday. In 2012, communities all along the river in Iowa and Nebraska experienced severe drought. The year before, flooding along the Missouri caused widespread damage. Rice says he hopes the blessing will make the river healthy.
