|This dog doesn't seem to like holy water|
Despite the weather we had a very nice crowd and after a brief prayer service, during which we all read Psalm 8 together, Father John went around to each pet and offered a prayer for them and blessed them and their owners (who got their own separate prayer too). I handed out a St. Francis prayer card to each person as well as another prayer that had a medal of St. Francis taped to it (courtesy of Fr. John). People mostly brought dogs but we did have a few cats and two turtles!
Mrs. Henning took a number of great pictures which you can see here.
Thanks to all who joined us tonight, it was a lot of fun.
