Blessing of Animals
Rochester NY

For the third year in a row, Saint John the Baptist Orthodox Church in Rochester NY hosted a blessing of animals (“our pets”) on Saturday, 7 November 2015. Parishioners warmly welcomed local neighbors and friends invited to the event as well as special guests from the Mounted Unit and K-9 Unit of the Rochester Police Department. Following a gathering outside the church, a procession led all to a  “molieban” prayer service of thanksgiving and blessing held in the parish basement. The occasion offered a time for fellowship and many smiles.
