Dozens of pets made a visit to a local church for a special ceremony.

Animals of all species were invited to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Academy in East Moline on Friday, October 4, 2013 for a blessing.

“We want to honor our good friends, our pets that these parents and students are bringing here today, so we can bless them and they can continue to keep peace in our families,” said Father Greg Jozefiak from St. Anne Parish.

St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church in Davenport held a pet blessing on Saturday.
