The Rev. Kevin Johnson, minister at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, blesses Tar Heel, one of about two dozen pets brought to the annual Blessing of the Animals held on the church grounds Saturday. Church members offered treats to the dogs, cat and bird brought to the ceremony and hot apple cider and cookies to their owners. Tar Heel was brought to the ceremony by Kay Sharpe of Washington.
