About 40 residents, with pets in tow, attended this year’s “Blessing of the Animals” event at All Saints Church on 46th Street on Saturday.
The attendees all brought dogs– with the exception of one woman who had a cat and a 7-year-old boy who brought his hamster (called Shadow).
Pastor Joseph Jerome started the ceremony with a reading, which was followed by a prayer and a hymn. Some attendees spoke about their animals and why they are special. The animals were then blessed.
Most amused by the kid with the gerbil. so cute thanks for sharing SP
And you have to pick up their s*** after walking em? Wonder who the real master is?
My dog refused to go. He’s an atheist.
This is sad…
Blessed be all that is.
What’s next ? Blessing plants, cars, TVs, furniture?
Christians can be so dogmatic sometimes.
May the force be with you.
