Blessing of the Animals

Written by Estero Bay News

Several animals and people with photos of their pets gathered at Estero Bay United Methodist Church in Morro Bay to be blessed on Oct. 8. Blessings were received by the usual cats and dogs, but a rabbit and turtles were also part of the event in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi’s love for all creatures.

Organizers report that treats were provided for both the animal and people, and that “a fun time was had by all with no dog fights.”

At the end of the program Pastor Steve Poteete-Marshall, shown here with Nibbles and Jay, went to Pacific Wildlife Care in Morro Bay to also ask blessings for the animals and workers there.
