Blessing of the Animals in Washingtonville

CAPTION 1: The annual Blessing of the Animals took place on Sept. 30 outside St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Washingtonville as Fr. Jeffrey Maurer welcomed and blessed a very large gathering of many of the area’s companions and their humans. (Photo by Eugenia Moskowitz)
CAPTION 2: There was a huge turnout of cats, dogs, and one guinea pig. But perhaps the most unusual pet was the hermit crab pictured here, which Fr. Maurer sprinkled with water. The cats were less pleased to be splashed, but tolerated it well enough. The dogs, in contrast, seemed pretty happy with the water in general. (Photo by Eugenia Moskowitz)
