blessing of the animals

Blessing of the Animals This Sunday (10/13)

This Sunday (10/13) at 3pm, The Church of the Ascension (127 Kent Street) is offering a different kind of service…and opening its doors to some non-traditional guests.

Visitors are invited to bring their pets, big and small, to the church to receive a blessing. The names of loved pets who have died in the past year will also be read in rememberence.

“It is quite healing for people to experience grief for their beloved animals in a public and communal context,” said Reverend John Mertz.

The blessing will last approximately 20 minutes.

If anyone attends, let us know how it goes…and if your pup is acting more pious post-blessing.
