The Animal Blessing was truly a blessing. We had several dogs and one cat in attendance. (No reptiles or tarantulas!) Everyone behaved themselves and the rain held off until just after the service ended. It's hard to believe that this was out 4th annual Animal Blessing. One man commented that it was just in time, since his pooches' blessing had almost expired. I think I like the animal blessing service because it is a joyous occasion, and always a little bit unpredictable!
One parishioner liked it so much she even wrote about it on her blog. Check it out!
