Christ Episcopal Church in Kent will offer a Blessing of the Animals on Oct. 7 as part of its 10 a.m. service of Holy Communion. Among some of the pets in last year’s attendance were several dogs, cats, a snake, and guinea pigs.
All kinds of animals and their owners may 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.
