Pets blessed during Long Beach interfaith event – Orange County Register

All pets go to heaven — at least the ones blessed over the weekend in Long Beach.

The annual interfaith blessing of the animals took place on the evening of Sunday October 2nd on the beach in Granada, an annual event timed to coincide with the week of the Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. St. Francis, whose feast day is celebrated on October 4th every year, is the patron saint of animals.

Long Beach organizer Justin Rudd and his Community Action Team — yes, the acronym happens to mean “CAT” — host the interfaith blessing on the beach every year.

At the event, reverends, priests, pastors and rabbis blessed numerous pets, mostly dogs – but also birds, cats and other animals.

Some of the blessed pets are elderly or ill, including Riley, a 10-year-old poodle mix who has cancer; Riley was blessed by Rev. Ava Park of the Goddess Temple of Orange County.
