Blessing of the Animals at Christ Episcopal Church Sunday
Program is part of 10 a.m. service of Holy Communion
Christ Episcopal Church will offer a Blessing of the Animals on Sunday, Oct. 7, as part of its 10 a.m. service of Holy Communion.
All kinds of animals and their owners are invited to attend this service. Pets should be in carriers or on leashes.
There will be a separate quiet space inside for shy pets in carriers who would not be comfortable attending the entire service. Prayers will also be offered by name for pets who have died or who cannot be present.
The service will be followed by a reception with refreshments for both people and pets. Visitors and their pets are welcome to attend.
Christ Episcopal Church is located at 118 S. Mantua St. (S.R. 43) in Kent. For more information, call The Rev. Julie Fisher at 330-256-8994.
