Father Andrzej Brzezienki of St. Margaret Mary Church blesses goats owned by the Brandt family of Barrington Hills during the second annual “Blessing of Animals” at the church Sunday, September 30, 2012 in Algonquin. Over 100 individuals came out with their pets-- which ranged from hermit crabs and mice to dogs and goats-- for the traditional Franciscan blessing as well as a raffle for small prizes.
