Chickens, dogs, a hamster, and a gecko received blessings Sunday at St. John's Episcopal Church. About 30 people attended a pet blessing event, including volunteers from Bedford Humane Society and the Friends of the Bedford County Animal Shelter, who brought some adoptable animals to be blessed. Priest Wilson Brown said the importance of the blessing is to celebrate the goodness of creation. Offerings were accepted for the Bedford Humane Society and the Friends of Bedford County Animal Shelter.
