Blessed are the dogs and cats
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.”
