Pet owners gathered for “Blessing of the Pets” at 9 a.m. in the school parking lot “green space” at St. Mary’s Parish School in Spring Lake.

Father Dan DePew, pastor of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, led a ceremony before blessing the pets with holy water.

“Blessing of the Pets” follows the teaching of St. Francis by honoring the love people have for animals.
