Pet blessing at Holy Trinity
Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Dunkirk celebrated the Feast of Saint Francis by blessing the pets of the parish. Over 60 pets and their owners attended. Father Joseph Zalacca presided over the event. Medals in honor of St. Francis, protector of pets, were given to all who attended and each pet received toys and bones. A collection was taken to benefit the Lakeshore Humane Society for all animals less fortunate than those of the parish.
