This year's Blessing of the Animals was a great success....despite the iffy-ness of the weather!

Each pet was given a St. Francis, Protect My Pet medal as well as some Milk Bone biscuits as a treat.

All dogs were extremely polite and they even showed their gratitude for this ministry by barking AMEN!! after Koshy's prayers!
 
Koshy blessed 30 dogs and a bag of plastic animals brought by a little boy who loved them as much as his live pet and wanted them included in the blessing...he was absolutely thrilled when Koshy did it!
 
Thanks go to Jim and Paula Minacci for setting up and cleaning up, Paul Fejko for the appropriate musical accompaniment  ( think Dr Doolittle....If I Could Talk to the Animals, etc.)...to Bob Jenkins for the poster and flyers he created....and last but not least...Jim Ufheil for taking pictures. 
 
We received donations in the amount of $53.00 which more than covered the cost of the St. Francis medals ($26.15).
