Dog, Cat Owners Attend Salisbury "Blessing Of The Animals"

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - There were some unusual sounds coming from Saint Peter's Church in Salisbury.

Father Todd Kissam led pet owners and their feline and canine companions in a "Blessing Of The Animals."  He read aloud to the animals a "Prayer for my Pet" as dogs barked and wagged their tails in approval.  As Father Kissam tells us, it's a fun, whole hearted way to bring people together.

"We haven't had anything very exotic, yet let's say, but mostly dogs.  It's fun to bring people together in a different setting at church," said Father Todd Kissam.    

This happens every year here and across the country.  We're told the tradition dates back centuries.
