    Dogs and cats blessed

    NewsDog CuriositiesMonday 17 October 2011

    Few dogs and cats were blessed at the Skyline Community Church in the Oakland Hills, Michigan, USA, during the 11th annual Blessing of the Animals day.

    Churches of denominations around the whole world from Catholic to Lutheran to Episcopalian were celebrathing the Blessing of the Animals. Every year, this particular day takes place around 4th October (the day of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals). Church members registered their animals, then sat down on folding chairs placed far enough apart that their pet could sit beside them. During the final part of the service, each animal received a blessing.
