Blessing of The Pets

The 'Blessing of The Pets' is a special service that is usually held on the first Thursday in October, outside on our front lawn. It is a community favorite and our four-legged participants have grown in numbers.

This is a celebration of the feast day of St Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. All pets receive general prayers and a special individual blessing from our Rector. The service lasts about 20 minutes then the pets receive treats and can frolic and play on the beautiful front lawn.

The service is held rain or shine. In the event of rain, the service is moved indoors.
