The barking of dozens of dogs echoed in the atrium of the Body of Christ parish, in the Bolivian city of El Alto, on Tuesday at a mass celebrated to bless the canines and their humans on Saint Roch’s Day.

Priest Justino Limachi and volunteers set up an altar on the outer steps of the church with the image of the patron saint of dogs and placed some chairs around to receive the residents of Villa Adela neighborhood of El Alto.
