For the love of all animals

Friday, October 5, 2012

Fr. Ben Uhlencott sprinkles holy water on pets and their owners during the annual Blessing of Pets on Sunday.

Families across Mountain Home brought a procession of dogs, cats and horses to the local Catholic parish for the yearly blessing --an international observance that coincides with the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi in remembrance of his love of all animals.
