Rev. Donna Mote Blessed The Horses of The Atlanta Police Mounted Patrol Unit

Oct 14, 2020

As part of the inaugural National Faith and Blue Weekend, the Rev. Donna Mote, Missioner for Engagement and Innovation, blessed the horses of the Atlanta Police Mounted Patrol Unit. National Faith & Blue Weekend, which took place the weekend of October 9-12, was created with the purpose to provide a first step toward reconnecting law enforcement officers with members of the communities they serve by leveraging the presence and influence of houses of worship. During the visit to the Atlanta Police Department’s horse facility, Rev. Donna Mote blessed 14 horses, 10 officers, and 2 barn cats.
