Blessed are the dogs and cats

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

PARISH­IONERS in­clud­ing cats and dogs at­tended a church’s an­nual pet ser­vice.

Choles­bury Church re­cently held the an­nual bless­ing of pets ser­vice which was at­tended by nine dogs and one cat plus a num­ber of chil­dren and their fam­i­lies. The ser­vice, which is usu­ally held out­side, had to be held in­side this year due to the rain.

Parish­ioner Liz Green said: “We had a won­der­ful turnout for the an­nual bless­ing of pets ser­vice. We gave thanks for all pets and an­i­mals and the hymns, read­ings and prayers were all care­fully cho­sen to en­able us to ap­pre­ci­ate and give thanks for our pets. Thank­fully the rain dried up and ev­ery­one en­joyed re­fresh­ments out­side af­ter the ser­vice.”
